I am Mark Lodico, a hospice chaplain in Vitas Hospice in the San Mateo, California office. A few other things to get out of the way — I am a priest with a small liberal Anglican community called the Universal Anglican Church (http://theuac.org/) and earned a doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 1993 from the Wright Institute, Berkeley. There!
Writing helps me process my work as a hospice chaplain and more importantly, to act as a voice for people with dementia. I want people throughout the world to have the experience of learning more about their own humanity through profound contact with people with dementia. Shall we start a movement?
