Elder Care Journey: A View from the Front Lines offers a close-up, personal frame of reference for understanding the U.S. long-term care system. In it, Olson finds her studies of elder care inconveniently interrupted by a real person with ever-increasing needs—her own mother. Thrust into a long-distance care-giving role, she discovers her previous notions about assisting a frail parent increasingly at odds with the reality of the experience. Countless Aha! moments reveal hidden aspects of situations that shatter earlier convictions and expose the irrationality of many government policies.
