In the spirit of not hiding the light of The Savvy Resident’s Guide under a bushel, I’ve decided to post the Amazon reviews of the book here on the blog.

by Susan Samek
Whether you have been newly admitted to a nursing home (for short term rehabilitation or a long term stay) or have been in one for some time, Dr. Eleanor Feldman Barbera gives useful, straightforward suggestions to make life less stressful in a nursing home. I particularly enjoy her sense of humor and use of vignettes to illustrate her points. The “Savvy Resident’s Guide” provides vital information into the workings and understanding of how things are done in a nursing home. The book is not only an excellent resource for the resident, but for the family or anyone who needs to gain insight into life in a nursing home. …And, it is in large print!
