And a personal thank you from Jane Rohde to two very special people that have supported culture change and resident centered care models that impacted the writing of this Guide. In memoriam, Susan Tuft, an expert and visionary in healthcare case management and bringing services to elders living at home and Miriam Sosnowski, a former resident of Charlestown Retirement Community, who taught me a great deal about not only aging, but most importantly about living.
