Overview

OVERDUE: Quality Care for OUR Elder Citizens examines how we as a culture treat our elder citizens as they continue life’s journey. The author presents the idea that Our Elder Citizens are essentially Our Future Selves, and therefore, each and every one of us should be concerned about the quality of care and quality of life they receive, especially within the long-term care setting. This book provides information on the nursing home industry from an insider’s perspective, more dignified, respectful and effective models of care, and the need for grassroots advocacy and a national conversation on how we care for our elder citizens.
