Publicity Spotlight:

New York Times praise for Lynda Shrager’s “guide to modifying, organizing, and decluttering Mom and Dad’s home”

Age in Place

On May 21, Age in Place (Bull Publishing, 9781945188183) by Lynda Shrager was prominently endorsed by New York Times personal health columnist, Jane E. Brody. In the feature, Brody calls the book “very helpful” and “comprehensive”—returning often to Shrager’s thoughts on the practicality, cost-effectiveness, and overall benefit of helping seniors live independently:

“'It’s cheaper to stay in your home, even if you have to make some renovations and get an aide a few days a week to help,’ Ms. Shrager said in an interview. ‘It’s money well spent and a lot cheaper than assisted living. But it’s important not to wait until there’s a crisis.'”

Readers are given a room-by-room tour, filled with simple adjustments to help seniors feel safe and navigate freely in their own homes. Author Lynda Shrager is a registered, national board certified occupational therapist, a master's level social worker and a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) with more than 37 years’ experience in the field of geriatrics and more than 13 years working with seniors in their homes. It is this mix of qualification and practical experience that makes her an expert in adapting the environment to increase patient safety and agency.

Check out Age in Place on the IPG Bookstore, or visit the New York Times to read the full feature.
