This is the best book I have read to date about the promise that transformative nursing homes will produce better lives for elders,caregivers, and families, and that this change is spreading far beyond the small group of initiators.

Old Age in a New Age: The Promise of Transformative Nursing Homes [is] an engaging, compassionate and well-researched book that anyone who plans to live beyond the age of 80 would benefit from reading.
Old Age in a New Age is a proactive wake up call written in an easy-to-read style.

Baker's book on the promise of transformative nursing homes is a step forward in understanding a process that has started and should be continued.
My 100-year-old mother is one of the many older people whose negative image of nursing homes made her plead with me never to put her in one. In Old Age in a New Age Beth Baker describes the ënew communities that look and feel much more like a home than a hospital both in their physical design and in the relationships that they nurture. After my mother reads Beth Baker's well written, thoughtful and authoritative account of this revolution in older residences, it should persuade her that she will be much happier in one of these than with a caretaker and the social isolation of a center city condominium.
