My new essay - "Calm-Downers, Resisters, and Bags by the Door." Sparked by a post-election day conversation about 🇺🇸 politics and protests. How do you stay engaged and zen at the same time?

It's in the premier issue of Scoundrel Time, a literary journal where artists & writers resist threats to freedom through creative works.

The name #ScoundrelTime refers to Lillian Hellman's memoir about going up against the House Un-American Activities Committee at the height of the McCarthy era.

But a​fter looking into 2016 research findings and new initiatives on treatment and prevention,​ h​ere are 10 reasons why I am feeling more hopeful about the future of Alzheimer’s.​ ​

My new column "Caring for Our Wounded Warriors" explores the size and scope of long-term military caregiving in 2016, and how we can support both the injured and their caregivers.

Anyone with parents over a certain age will relate. Six months ago, I wondered if mom, 87, would rebound from my stepfather's death and spring back into life. Or would she sink into depression and lose her mojo in late-life widowhood? A lot has happened since then. I share six lessons I've learned about helping a widowed parent in my latest​ column.

he Politics of Caregiving. Good timing with the election today!
This is my newest article on the politics of caregiving, prompted by the cancer patient at the last Democratic Town Hall who asked Hillary Clinton about caregiving and "right to die" concerns. It made me wonder why these issues don't come up more often.
