I came upon this book while taking the healthcare aided course many years ago. I was so overwelmed by it. I have suggested many times it should be a manditory read for everyone entering the health care field. It lets us know how that client feels, waiting for us to come and turn them , hoping we will offer them a drink.....thank-you so much. Enlightening ,moving and memorable. Marni Arnott,Petkau
