Stories of caring are all around us. Every caregiver has a story, and every story ripples through family members, friends, coworkers and beyond. When Lori Hogan set out to collect 52 caregiving stories to include in Strength for the Moment, she didn’t have to go far to find an abundance of personal narratives, advice, wisdom, inspiration and hope.
