It is especially pleasing to see the long needed collaboration between nursing, social services, and education that is reflected by the training of the authors. This book is an important milestone for the field of aging and assisted living administration," said Robert Newcomer, PhD, Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences, University of California-San Francisco, (From the Foreword)
