Allan Teel, MD
Physician, author and eldercare activist
This is a fascinating interview with a caring and compassionate doctor and advocate. Teel is the author of Alone and Invisible No More: How Grassroots Community Action and 21st Century Technologies Can Empower Elders to Stay in Their Homes and Lead Healthier, Happier Lives. In this conversation he explains how we could overhaul our eldercare system. Based on his own efforts to create humane, affordable alternatives in Maine, Teel’s program harnesses both staff and volunteers to help people remain in their homes and communities.
