Today's Caregiver magazine printed my article, "Pascal, Passports, and Past Regrets" in its May-June issue. I describe a caregiving day when my mom inspired me by not regretting and my dad encouraged me to let go of one of my regrets. My mother is truly Queen of Graceful Transitions, even in the face of loss. The article includes examples of conversation tips when speaking with a person in mid-stage Alzheimer's. You can read it here.
