"Rebooting the Nursing Home"
Beth Baker is the author of several books. One, which I consider a classic is OLD AGE IN A NEW AGE. It was written almost ten years ago, but it is still so relevant. It tells the story of several nursing homes in their transition from a hospital-like INSTITUTION to HOME. I consider it a must read.
Beth continues to write about this culture shift in nursing homes and has just this morning posted an article from Politico titled "Rebooting the Nursing Home." Future consumers of nursing home services as well as present advocates of present nursing home residents must begin to imagine nursing homes in a new way and demand that environment and philosophy. We must be able to imagine it if we are to make it happen.
