There is a movement to transform the hospital-like setting of long-term care facilities into a warm, home-like environment. Leading the way is James H. Collins, Ph.D., a highly respected gerontologist and one of America’s foremost advocates of putting the emphasis on the resident and not the medical processes. In his groundbreaking book, The Person-Centered Way: Revolutionizing Quality of Life in Long-Term Care, Dr. Collins methodically and logically appeals to every health care professional working in long-term care facilities, group homes, and assisted living facilities, as well as friends and family of nursing home residents, to consider and then adopt this person-centered approach. From dining to socializing, minimizing the focus on medicines and putting that focus on the individual, encouraging socialization and removing the stigma of formal and impersonal attitudes toward residents, the author delivers a compassionate and compelling argument.
