Main description:

"Beaulieu's decades of social work practice illuminate every chapter,
her years of networking with colleagues in Massachusetts and nationwide enhance
every paragraph, and nuggets of insight earned through successfully establishing
meaningful relationships with residents and families are reflected in every word.
She knows her stuff and through this book shares it with others who are committed to
enhancing the quality of life of nursing home residents through excellent social
work services."

From the Foreword by
Mercedes Bern-Klug, PhD, MSW, MA
The University of
Iowa School of Social Work
