From Library Journal Almost a quarter of America's nursing home residents receive substandard care, according to government reports, despite numerous state and federal regulations created to protect the nation's most vulnerable citizens. When a paralyzing stroke and dementia force Loucks's mother to move to a nursing home, the author quickly learned that it would up to her to ensure that her mother was neither neglected nor harmed by the home's overworked, often indifferent care providers. A psychotherapist who had also worked as a nursing assistant in a nursing home, Loucks details her mother's life as a total-care resident in a typical skilled-nursing facility and her own attempts to advocate for better care. Woven into the narrative are specifics about how she monitored her mother's well-beingDstudying her chart, being present when she was being attended to, explaining her dietary needs, and finding new physicians when necessary. What results is an honest picture of life in a nursing home combined with much useful information for residents' families. A resource list includes nursing home reform organizations.
