"In Old Age in a New Age, journalist Beth Baker takes readers on a journey into some of the best places in America for elders to live. In these remarkable nursing homes, residents have a say in their everyday lives, enjoy an environment that looks and feels like an ordinary home, live with dignity and purpose, and find comfort in close relationships with caregivers." "Baker's visits to more than two dozen facilities include those associated with the Eden Alternative, Green House, Kendal, and the Pioneer Network - where she made some surprising discoveries."--BOOK JACKET.
