    1. Angil Tarach-Ritchey’s new release Behind the Old Face – Aging in American and the Coming Elder Boom is very well researched and written. It raises thought provoking questions, suggests answers and proposes a real plan to provide care for the elderly, especially those like most of us who don't have unlimited financial resources for assisted care indefinitely. This author, whose entire career has been devoted to the care of seniors, offers real answers in her well thought out and workable pla [...]


    2. The book was amazing and gives an amazing perspective on the aging process and how things need to change with the coming Elder Boom! I was blown away by how this book makes you think and understand what is "Behind the Old Face" and helps to make you realize that truly one of our most valuable resources are those living among us who have seen it and done it already!


    3. Few books on aging provide the multiple perspectives needed to understand the current aging crisis in America. Typically, the focus is singular. Facts and figures on demographic trends, advocacy or interviews with older persons are the focus. Caregiving issues may figure prominently or a proposed model for community is discussed. Rarely, do you see a combination of these topics. This book covers it all.Angil Tarach-Ritchey offers 30 years of nursing experience with the elderly, advanced professi [...]


    4. Behind the Old Face-- A book with Clarity and Insight--Angil Tarach-Ritchey has written a superb book about her observations and experiences as a nurse with 30 years of experience caring for aging adults. She details many life experiences that have shaped her perspective about our health system and how we as a society have been addressing and caring for our older adults. She expresses her frustrations that we pay too little attention to the lives our patients have lived. I found reading about he [...]


    5. This book contains three parts- Part One discusses the current climate of aging, Two is made up of interviews the author conducted with elderly people, and three describes a model on the future of caregiving and how it might be a better and more cost effective way to provide care to seniors. She writes in a way that is easy to understand-which is good because when I have to read a lot of "technical" terms it cause my brain to glitch. She also emphasizes empathy when providing care so the carees [...]


    6. Great book to help re-sensitize anyone/everyone to the very real human beings that elderly people still are. And to remind every single one of us, young and not so young, that elderly people are us, just a few years older. Chapter after chapter not only tells real stories, but asks many questions that would be great for group discussions. Our popular culture has teaches us that elderly people are of no longer any use to our society - actually they are the most awesome teachers among us - and sho [...]


    7. This is a book EVERYONE should read. It is eye-opening, heart rendering, and inspiring. Our care system is badly broken. If you're a Baby Boomer, you'll want to take action while you can to improve the quality of care for our growing elderly population (which includes you). If you're Gen X, Y, or Millenial, you'll very likely be in position of being responsible for the care of an aging loved one. After reading this book, and learning the sad state of our system, you should be sparked to take the [...]


    8. Angil Tarach-Ritchey has written a truly unique book about aging. It is actually three books in one. One book is about Angil herself. That is, who she is, what she believes in, in regard to our elderly population now and her vision for the future of aging Americans. It's also about the journey Angil has taken to get to the place of advocacy she now dwells in. The second book is a storybook of lives of older adults she has known. Through a series of vignettes about these people she shows us what [...]
