If your loved one is in assisted-care or memory-care, here's a great read for you!
Who Moved My Dentures, by caregiving expert Anthony Cirillo, debunks misperceptions about the long-term care industry through stories of people thriving in the very places many associate with dying.
Mr. Cirillo, who also entertains at senior-living communities, explained that the book began as stories about people he met during his entertaining and evolved into a book that sets straight several common misperceptions about the long-term care industry. He reveals how the industry is financed and policed, and explains the differences in long-term options. He shares valuable tips and advice for people facing long-term care choices for themselves or a loved one.
At its heart, Who Moved My Dentures is a story about people who are thriving, despite being written off by others. Professionals in the field, those who care for older adults, and those in the Boomer generation who are beginning to face these choices for themselves will find this book both enjoyable and valuable.
