I was the president of the Family Council during and for a short time after my father was in residence in one. I found it an interesting experience.
I have been a volunteer in two LTC homes, as well as a close friend of a resident, Michele, whom I visited regularly.
I wrote a lot about it all in my book,
Living and Dying With Dignity: A daughter's journey through long-term care
