About the Author

Christine Klotz has a long career working with older adults and their families. What professional experience didn’t teach she learned through the eye-opening experience of her own parents’ final years.
She began as an occupational therapist, became Director of Marketing for National Jewish Hospital, was chief executive in the start-up of two Programs for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), and was CEO of Senior Health Partners of New York City.
Currently she serves on the boards of directors for several non-profit organizations devoted to the health and welfare of older adults. She and her husband live outside Madison Wisconsin.
