About the Author

Charlie s career in the US Army, including serving in Operation Desert Storm, came as the Women s Army Corps (WAC) ended and women were entering mainstream assignments. The Louisiana native then became an inadvertent pioneer. When she retired, she turned to her love of writing off with the combat boots and onto the computer. Charlie and her husband, Hugh, relocated to south Florida where they enjoy scuba diving and other pursuits.

Format: Paperback
Charlie Hudson has written an insightful answer to the following questions about aging and death, “Do you want to remain ignorant hoping death will be simple and quick?; who do you want responsible for your end-of-life decisions?; and how and where will you live?”
Far too many find themselves aging slowly with loss of physical and mental processes unnoticeable until it interferes with normal functioning. Most responses to getting your affairs in order are, “Let’s not talk about this now, you’re in perfect health; I don’t want to talk about this right now, I’m doing fine; I’m going to die in my sleep,” or variations of these sentiments.
Hudson’s experience with the slow decline and eventual death of her maternal and paternal grandmother’s and her first husband’s mother, provides insights for readers to prepare for their own and others “winter stage” of their lives. Thoughts, observations noted in her journal, and recommendations from professionals tending the elderly provide a well rounded planning aid and resource that allows for individual decisions based on adaptations to particular changes in the aging process.
An important part of aging is the consideration of quality of life. What is quality to one may be unacceptable to another. Decisions as quality declines and what possible interventions are used to enhance and sustain life are discussed in Part II. Just like deciding who will make your decisions and where will you live as your faculties fail, the answers to “what is quality of life and what life saving measures do you want performed?” must be answered.
I especially like the sources, resources and recommended organizations at the end. When I need an answer, I read everything I can find with the desire to make my decision based on a strong foundation of information.

Extremely well written and covers the areas we face when dealing with the end of our lives and those of our families.
Since every one is going to die...this would be one great book to read before...even a long time before that happens.

Format: Paperback
Charlie Hudson has written a book that highlights areas of difficulty and concern as one ages. The book is extremely helpful in thinking and guiding actions for one's parents or loved ones that are getting up in age, but it is also a helpful pathway for yourself. We never know when something is going to change our sense of "normal" and many of the discussion points assist in plotting a course for oneself. Charlie's way of infusing personal stories to highlight the situations adds a personal touch that draws you into the topic. I believe this is a beneficial guide for all to plan for the future.
