Author and Historian, Ron Ringer at the book launch

We are very pleased to  have received some very positive reviews of our book from esteemed commentators within the Australian aged care and healthcare sectors…

“The very best historians are sensitive to the wider cultural factors that impact on their subjects. At the same time they write in ways that engage their readers. Ron Ringer is such an historian. While recording the details  of the founding and evolution of Twilight House in New South Wales since 1915, he is ever alert to the changing social, political and economic influences affecting founders, administrators and residents. No matter the changes, the abiding exemplary lesson of Twilight Aged Care over the decades for aged care services today is this: despite increasing financial pressures, respect for dignity of residents must remain paramount.”Dr Gerald A. Arbuckle, SM, Ph.D. Author: Humanizing Healthcare Reforms (2013) Read More
