Shirley Joy Shaw is Executive Director of Rakhma, Inc., Services for the Elderly, an innovative group home concept she developed that provides joyful, personal, ongoing assistance to aging men and women. Inspired by her grandmother, who taught her the meaning of unconditional love, Shaw's model moves elder care out of the institution and into the heart. She feels very strongly that teaching about aging is as much a part of her work as caring for the elderly. Lynn Baskfield, M.A., is a transformational educator and a personal development coach assisting individuals and businesses to use their creative resources. She is also a storyteller and award-winning writer. Her insight into creative care for the elderly is derived from a long friendship with Shirley Joy Shaw and involvement in the development of her vision. Lynn's mother, who had Alzheimer's disease, lived with dignity and love at Rakhma Peace Home until her death in 1994.
