I bought this book a few weeks ago when my mother had a stroke.
All the things the author warned about happened (don't let them move your loved one from the hospital to the nursing home at night, make sure they have the records and permission for pain medications, etc.) I sat there all the first night in the nursing home with my mother - no pain medication, no records, and a fried chicken meal for a stroke patient who couldn't chew or swallow. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to look at the book until a few days after she was admitted; I could have avoided all this.
Now that I've read the rest, I feel better about her being there. There won't be any more surprises and I will know how to deal with issues as they come up. I am fortunate that my mother is recovering and will be home soon. Thanks to this book, I'll be better prepared if it happens again.
