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.
