From the Publisher"This is an excellent text on an important topic. The author's empathic understanding of the issues involved in the long-term care of frail older individuals makes this book one not only of useful instruction but also of sprirtual inspiration." Leila Toiviainen, University of Tasmania, Australia, Nursing Ethics
"This book has been hailed by critics as a milestone in medical ethics...It challenges clinicians to reexamine many of the ethical principles on which they have based their interactions with patients in long-term care." New England Journal of Medicine
"I found this book to be a fascinating read, one that made me pause, examine and re-examine the author's premises. I especially appreciate the author's phenomenological approach and his discussion of autonomy in the framework of four themes: space, time, communication, and affectivity and the role of autonomy in the choices of everyday life for older adults needing long-term care because of increasing frailty."
