ISBN:0801865980 "Dr. Buhler?Wilkerson taught at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing from 1972 until her death… She published three books and 40 articles, but is best known for her award-winning book, No Place Like Home: A History of Nursing and Home Care in the United States. Fascinated by place, and its influence on the delivery of health care, Dr. Wilkerson traces home care from its earliest beginnings in 1813, by the Ladies Benevolent Society in Charleston, South Carolina, where Karen spent much of her later childhood, to its reinvention with the Visiting Nurse Service, under the leadership of Lillian Wald, in New York City in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The story culminates with the role of Medicare in the delivery of home care services, a story still unfolding today" (In Memorium Penn Nursing News, 2010).
