The Savvy Resident’s Guide/Hurricane Sandy Donation on 11/12/12

For the past 16 years, I’ve worked as a psychologist in long-term care and have witnessed the difficulties residents and their families have had adjusting to this strange and unfamiliar environment.  That’s why I wrote The Savvy Resident’s Guide: Everything You Wanted to Know About Your Nursing Home Stay But Were Afraid to Ask, now available on Amazon ($13.99 print, $4.99 Kindle).  It’s a large-print book for residents (and families, staff, and students) explaining how nursing homes work and how people can make the most of their stays.  It’s packed with need-to-know information and straightforward advice from me and my wise resident-narrators.  There’s no other book out there like it!
