John Geyman, M.D. announces publication of: Long-Term Care in America: The Crisis All of Us Will Face in Our Lifetimes.

A long-time writer about U.S. health care, Dr. Geyman examines the problems which face persons needing long-term care, offers suggestions and resources for making decisions, describes available government and community programs, discusses the under-valuation of caregivers who are essential for long-term care, and explains the need for financing reform and how to achieve it.

David Himmelstein, M.D. and Steffie Woolhandler, M.D., health policy experts and distinguished professors of public health at the City University of New York, offer this comment:

“All of the U.S. health care system is deeply dysfunctional, but long-term care is its shabbiest and most neglected corner. Geyman brings the wisdom gained from his dual roles as a leader of American medicine and a long-time caregiver for his late wife to brilliantly analyze what’s wrong with long-term care and how it can be fixed.”

The book is available at Griffin Bay Bookstore in Friday Harbor and other island bookstores.
