Atul Gawande ‘s acclaimed book, “Being Mortal” opened our eyes to see the medical way of death. He showed millions
of readers how quality of life and human interaction while dying trump the quantify of years gained through
questionable painful procedures and dying in a institution.
GCM Nina Herndon brings you that same quality of life message- not about dying -but living an elder’s life with joy. Her new chapter “Supporting Clients’ Quality of Life: Drawing on Community, Informal Networks, and Care Manager Creativity” in the 4th edition of Handbook of Geriatric Care Management is a geriatric care management breakthrough.. Nina has devoted her career to giving elders a care plan for more happiness .
She teaches care managers that bringing quality of life to an elder is more that physical comfort .It’s bringing joy in the here and now through using quality of life tools- spiritual, emotional, intellectual, creative, physical, environmental, and vocational, well-being.
The Handbook’s 4th edition with Nina’s chapter will be available November 1.
