The Home

Ellen Petersilie Gilman ’60
has published The Home, a memoir about the two decades she worked as the art specialist in a long-term health care facility in the Bronx in New York City. The Home (Shakespeare & Co., 2018) is a collection of stories about the residents, their families, and the staff in this institution. The book is sad. The book is funny. The stories are true and spotlight some of the issues we have in providing reasonable and compassionate care for our elders as well as adequate support for caretakers.
