"This excellent and accurate personal documentation by a long-distance caregiver as he 'travels' with his mother from her fierce independence to dependence is a very helpful guide to assist us as we care for our loved ones in their advanced years - and plan ahead for ourselves."

- Hon. Dorcas R. Hardy, Former Commissioner of Social Security and 2005 White House Conference on Aging Chair
