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.
This is a great tool for neighborhood and household coordinators, for activities professionals, for caregivers or any staff, for volunteers and families trying to make a difference in the lives of elders

Alarms: The New Deficient Practice? Eliminating Alarms and Reducing Falls by Engaging With Life
This groundbreaking workbook shows how in many cases alarms can actually contribute to falls rather than prevent them. Follow the journey of Oakview Terrace, a nursing home which removed all personal alarms in 2007, and in the process actually decreased fall rates and pressure ulcers while increasing quality of life. Learn how to work within the regulations to remove these intrusive and institutional devices from your home, creating a more peaceful and natural living environment.
Too many of us believe that there is little of worth that happens in later life. We dread our own aging, as though adventure and passion are used up and all that remains is a penchant for repeating the old stories. Glorious Adventure shows how much awaits us, if we dare.
