In Pursuit of the Sunbeam (2nd ed.)
"The sunbeam," the right to home, has eluded the frail elders of this country for too long. It is time for a change. In Pursuit of the Sunbeam is a guide for individuals and organizations looking to embrace the true home of the resident-directed Household Model. Based on James O. Prochaska's stages of change, the Norton and Shields Change Matrix plots the transformational journey from beginning awareness of the need for change on a personal level through physical and organizational reconstruction into households licensed as skilled nursing facilities.
It’s big, beautiful and packed with stories, pictures and ideas about energizing daily life in neighborhoods and households. Vibrant Living was written by Carmen Bowman and LaVrene Norton as a how-to guide, but it is also a scrapbook of photos and stories from organizations across the country highlighting the vibrant living that goes on in their homes. From ethnic celebrations to coffee klatch, from tree climbing to a quiet afternoon curled up on the couch, organizations are finding ways to make it possible for elders to live lives full of interest, value, meaning and spontaneity.
