About The Savvy Resident’s Guide:

The Savvy Resident’s Guide explains how nursing homes work and how people can make the most of their stays. This large-print guide is the only book available that is directed specifically toward residents. Its calm, pragmatic approach will reassure readers and give them practical tools for handling a nursing home stay.

Families will find answers to many of their own questions about nursing homes in The Savvy Resident’s Guide. Reading the stories of the resident narrators will help family members understand what Mom or Dad worries about after they’ve left for the day.
