Are you and your family faced with the decision of placing your loved one in a nursing home? The choice may be one of the most important decisions that you will ever make. In Choosing a Good Nursing Home, Sherri L. Mitchell offers valuable insight in understanding the questions to ask to properly explore which nursing home can best meet the needs of your loved one. Choosing a Good Nursing Home enables you to see the facility from a different vantage point. It moves beyond the surface appearance of the home and looks at the areas that will aid you in making a knowledgeable decision. The book covers topics from what to look for in the initial tour of the facility, to knowing what questions to ask if your loved one has dementia, is in need of therapy, has weight loss problems or has pressure ulcers (bedsores). Choosing a Good Nursing Home allows you to make a more informed decision as to where to place your loved one, whether the stay will be for short-term rehabilitation or permanent placement. Sherri L. Mitchell began her career in nursing home administration after her grandmother received poor care in a nursing home. She subsequently became a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator (L.N.H.A.) in the state of Illinois. She couples her previous experience as a granddaughter (of a nursing home resident) with her experience as an administrator to give you the needed perspective to assist you in selecting a good nursing home. Mitchell resides in Chicago, Illinois with her husband of eleven years. Visit her website at

The authoritative, informative, and reassuring guide on end-of-life care for our aging population. Most people say they would like to die quietly at home. But overly aggressive medical advice, coupled with an unrealistic sense of invincibility or overconfidence in our health-care system, results in the majority of elderly patients misguidedly dying in institutions. Many undergo painful procedures instead of having the better and more peaceful death they deserve. AT PEACE outlines specific active and passive steps that older patients and their health-care proxies can take to ensure loved ones live their last days comfortably at home and/or in hospice when further aggressive care is inappropriate. Through Dr. Samuel Harrington's own experience with the aging and deaths of his parents and of working with patients, he describes the terminal patterns of the six most common chronic diseases; how to recognize a terminal diagnosis even when the doctor is not clear about it; how to have the hard conversation about end-of-life wishes; how to minimize painful treatments; when to seek hospice care; and how to deal with dementia and other special issues. Informed by more than thirty years of clinical practice, Dr. Harrington came to understand that the American health-care system wasn't designed to treat the aging population with care and compassion. His work as a hospice trustee and later as a hospital trustee drove his passion for helping patients make appropriate end-of-life decisions.

Choosing the Good Life: Two Competing Economic Visions shines a bright light on one of the greatest issues of the 21st century. It also tees up one of the most vitally important decisions you will ever make as a citizen. Indeed, this book presents the two distinct and competing economic visions for what constitutes the "Good Life." These economic visions represent two different economic systems, two different ways of looking at life, and two different ways of living life. In fact, they are based on two opposing philosophies of life. Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, each economic vision is competing for your mind and fighting for your support. Your choice of economic visions will help to determine whether America and our civilization will grow or decline; whether we will live in prosperity or struggle with poverty; and whether we will live in peace or at war. You have enormous power as a citizen to influence, shape and decide America's future. Truly, your choice and the choices of millions of other citizens will ultimately impact and help to determine which economic vision will become reality in America and in the world. While this book addresses citizens in America in the early 21st century, its principles and knowledge apply equally well across both time and space. The ideas within Choosing the Good Life are appropriate to citizens in other nations today, and likely will be relevant for generations of citizens to come in the future. In that sense, it is a classic book on economic freedom.
