About the Author Lisa Lynn Gael had worked as an adjunct professor for 15 years when her mother was suddenly diagnosed with Dementia and placed in an elder care facility. As difficult as it was to visit her mom, she witnessed wonderful moments each time. Elder care facilities (assisted living and nursing homes) provide places where time slows down in an attempt to accommodate the needs of the residents.
