Editorial Reviews

A. Frank Johns
I love this book! Carefully constructed stories... excellent and practical problem solving. The authors are on the front line of nursing home reform %#151; one-on-one, resident by resident.
Bill Novelli
While we all hope that nursing homes will take care of our loved ones the way we would if we could, experience shows that getting good care really depends on us %#151; family members and close friends. This new edition of this highly acclaimed book provides the information we all need to recognize problems when they occur, learn what quality care is and what's required by law, and identify people and organizations that can help us. Everyone with a family member or close friend in a nursing home should have Nursing Homes: Getting Good Care There.
Charles E. Grassley
Good nursing home care definitely exists, but you have to know where to look and how to look. This book is a valuable tool for consumers seeking quality nursing home care.
T. Franklin Williams
This book, in its direct, easy-to-read style, will help families and friends of persons in nursing homes to understand what makes good care, and the laws that support it. Fully informed customers can build a partnership with nursing home staff which helps everybody.
