About the Author

A former hospital worker herself, Beth Baker is a freelance journalist, a regular contributor to the Washington Post Health Section and the AARP Bulletin. Baker is the winner of two Gold National Mature Media Awards for her reporting on aging.


Old Age in a New Age is a proactive wake up call written in an easy-to-read style.
--Julie Ann Buss, RN, Inside GCM
Old Age in a New Age: The Promise of Transformative Nursing Homes [is] an engaging, compassionate and well-researched book that anyone who plans to live beyond the age of 80 would benefit from reading.
--Workforce Management
Baker's book on the promise of transformative nursing homes is a step forward in understanding a process that has started and should be continued.
My 100-year-old mother is one of the many older people whose negative image of nursing homes made her plead with me never to put her in one. In Old Age in a New Age, Beth Baker describes the new communities that look and feel much more like a home than a hospital both in their physical design and in the relationships that they nurture. After my mother reads Beth Baker's well written, thoughtful and authoritative account of this revolution in older residences, it should persuade her that she will be much happier in one of these than with a caretaker and the social isolation of a center city condominium.
--Leonard Hayflick, former president of the Gerontological Society of America
This is the best book I have read to date about the promise that transformative nursing homes will produce better lives for elders, caregivers, and families, and that this change is spreading far beyond the small group of initiators.
--Care Management Journals
