Alone and Invisible No More

How Grassroots Community Action and 21st Century Technologies Can Empower Elders to Stay in Their Homes and Lead Healthier, Happier Lives

by Allan Teel, M.D.

Praise

"A must-read book for any community looking at its own aging population and pondering care for these older citizens. Dr. Teel's pioneering 'stay-at-home' approach shifts the focus from medicalized care to empowering older adults to serve as resources for one another. This approach creates the true foundation for health and well-being in one's later years. Teel's project moves our dialogue about aging forward in one great leap."

Dennis McCullough, MD, Associate Professor, Community and Family Medicine, Dartmouth Medical School, and author, My Mother, Your Mother: Embracing Slow Medicine


"Compassion and passion are two essentials in the medical care for older persons. Dr. Teel's care for his patients has spurred him to forge an innovative and comprehensive approach to their care and has the promise of being a model for communities everywhere."

Ted C. Fishman, author of Shock of Gray


"Alone and Invisible No More is a deeply human, delightfully funny, and fascinating account of how people have come together in community to create the 'Maine Approach.'"

Nikitas Zervanos, MD, Director Emeritus, Family Practice Residency, Lancaster General Health


"Dr. Teel has written a serious, comprehensive book about the coming revolution over aging in America. There are a number of states that have put together pieces of the elder-care puzzle—from offering more independent settings paid for by Medicaid to scaling back on nursing-home expansions (since if you build one you have to fill it). This book pulls all these reforms together and helps us understand the underlying social movement against 'kicking seniors to the curb.' " Hopefully it will also serve as a call to real action, not just reform of bureaucracy!

Howard Dean, former Chair of the Democratic National Committee and Vermont governor; author of Howard Dean's Prescription for Real Healthcare Reform.
