Her book realistically portrays the emotional and practical struggles of the elderly living in a nursing facility. Dr. Somers notes, "This often-neglected area of the human condition is a facet of the common experience that has been awaiting its chronicler and publicist ... The problems The Home addresses are relevant to a far greater number of Americans than ever before ...
