Nursing Home 101: A Daughter's Perspective
Ruthie Rosauer and her sister were abruptly thrust into the world of nursing homes when a hospital social worker gave them less than twenty-four hours to find placement for their elderly mother. Thus began their daunting journey of finding a facility, and navigating end-of-life-related paperwork, dental care, staff, hospice, and every other detail individuals must face when seeking long-term care for their loved-ones.
In this book, Ruthie shares information from her personal journal, as well as interviews with others who have lived through similar situations. Their stories shed light on the realities of living in a nursing home, or caring for somebody who does.
A must-read for anyone navigating the world of long-term care, either now or in the near future.
