An outstanding series: A close look at the state of the adult day health services

{/literal}{include file="blk:thedigitaldesk_header"}{literal}

We began an important series over the long Thansksgiving weekend, shedding light on the state of adult care services in Oklahoma.

It appeared in The Oklahoman and on NewsOK in three parts from Friday through Sunday. And while we know The Oklahoman is widely used on long holiday weekends, the traffic on NewsOK .com is about half as much as normal.

That’s why we want you to take the time today to take a closer look at this series.

I know what you’re thinking. “It sounds like a heavy subject,” you say. “Do you have anything about Tiger Woods missing a tooth or Bob Stoops changing jobs?”

(I know you’re saying that, because I said something similar in the weeks leading up to this series as we discussed how we would showcase this content on NewsOK.com … I was merely playing the role of the skeptic.)

I promise one thing: You won’t regret the time investment to educate yourself on this topic. Reporter Ron Jackson and photographer/videographer John Clanton practiced some serious journalism in telling the stories that make up this complex topic.

As quality journalists often do, Ron and John told the stories in a way that made me become quickly engaged and infinitely interested in the plight of the caregivers, the patients, the lawmakers, the lobbyists and the entire adult-care industry.

And if you need any more reason to click on the page and digest every word, just take two minutes to watch the slideshow below:

Now …. on to the series: The state of adult day health services in Oklahoma.
