There is great wisdom in the hearts and minds of our elders. Too often, this wisdom is lost as time passes. What a tragedy! In writing this book, elder rights advocate and author Mark Elliott Miller emailed, mailed, and hand-delivered surveys to over 100 independent and assisted living eldercare communities in all 50 states. He asked activity directors, administrators, and other staff at these facilities to identify one or two residents "who have healthy attitudes towards life." Once identified, these elders answered questionnaires in their own words. Elders in 18 states participated by sharing timeless pearls of wisdom for all to enjoy!
