Inside Assisted Living: The Search for Home

J. Kevin Eckert, Author, Paula C. Carder, Author, Leslie A. Morgan, Author , foreword by Bill Thomas, M.D. Johns Hopkins Univ. $16.95 (246p) ISBN 978-0-8018-9260-8

The authors—researchers and academics with the Center for Aging Studies at the Erickson School and with the University of Maryland—spent five years studying life in six Baltimore-area assisted-living facilities. These ranged from an eight-resident home owned by two sisters to a 112-person residential-care facility that is part of a for-profit corporation. The book offers excerpts from interviews with residents, family members and staff. While it can illuminate in depth many of the issues in assisted-care living, its primary audience should be readers with a professional or policy interest in care for the aged. (June 15)
