There's No Place Like (a Nursing) Home by Karen Shoff
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"There's No Place Like a Nursing Home" explains the silent causes of nursing home placements and the reason why a nursing home can never be a dignified place to live. One chapter deals with the environment and culture of nursing homes themselves. The main focus of the book is to explain the four critical steps we need to take in our middle years to avoid nursing homes forever. Many years ago, as a young social worker, I spent a full year working in nursing homes. I was sure I could find a way to improve these facilities. Later, as a gerontologist, I discovered that the very nature of these institutional settings preclude them from ever being places to live in dignity. Finally, as a Long Term Care Insurance broker, with my background in social work and gerontology, I created a way for Americans to plan ahead to avoid future institutionalization. "There's No Place Like a Nursing Home" walks you step by step through the process of formulating and implementing your long term care plans. These four powerful steps, begun in our middle years, will enable us to receive future care in the comfort of our own homes, preserve our assets, and remove the burden of care from our loved ones.
