If you take a look at the left-hand column on my blog you’ll notice a list of books that are Changing Aging. The Erickson School this Friday is providing a rare opportunity to hear from the author of the newest and one of the most influential additions to this list — “Old Age in a new Age: The Promise of Transformative Nursing Homes,” by prominent free-lance journalist Beth Baker.
I’ve had the privilege of talking to Beth numerous times in the course of her compassionate and insightful reporting on the transformation of long term care in America. Do you think nursing homes have to be a place of last resort? I highly encourage you to come and meet Beth Baker and learn how nursing homes are turning into transformative homes, and how this change will benefit us all.
WHEN: 1:30 p.m., Friday, April 11, 2008
WHERE: UMBC, ITE Building, Room 102
