There is a difference between the many homes that walk the walk, working hard every day to provide the best possible experience for their residents, and those that talk about great care, but don’t prioritize investing in the people and processes that assure it. Hopefully, “Overdue: Quality Care for Our Elder Citizens” will prompt a spirited public discussion that will lead to a society that assures every person has the long-term care experience we would all expect for ourselves and our families. I recommend this book highly not only for families, but also for inclusion as part of health care education for our young people.Dan Cohen, MSW Executive Director Music & Memory www.musicandmemory.org
Phyllis was able to help our family understand important underlying issues and ask important questions of our father’s Nursing Home. Her knowledge, expertise and guidance helped us feel more confident to ask the right follow-up questions to ensure our father receives the best care. It was clear that we didn’t know what we didn’t know. Her input was extremely valuable.Steve Spiro, Consultant/Mentor
