Vortex: The Journey of a Nursing Home Survivor
Where Light and Dark Abide is a true documentary of my experience of living in a nursing facility for thirteen months, what it took me to survive and the people involved. The results of the daily experience caused me to do the best I could to help the residents. One of them was one hundred and one. My memoir of our experience and the outcome of it caused me to, more than ever, realize the need for reform in nursing facilities and health care in general.
