This book details and heavily documents pitfalls encountered by older Americans. David, the subject of this volume, was misdiagnosed, seriously injured by a doctor, prematurely released, cancelled by Medicare, denied insurance payments, double billed, tormented by bill collectors, denied adequate treatment and otherwise abused. Those who read this book will be exposed to actual thoughts and emotions that were recorded within minutes of mind numbing situations that led to the very brink of murder/suicide. Readers will also get to know Mary the Angel of Mercy, aka Tilly, a roly-poly home health care nurse who repeatedly saved the day when doctors and government agencies all but abandoned a critically ill WW I Vet. This book may very well enable the BABY BOOM GENERATION and their caregivers to help themselves by forewarning them so they will stand a better chance of avoiding situations that can and do befall aging Americans.

The author was born when his father was 51 years old so he was surrounded by aunts and uncles, as well as some cousins, who were 40 to 60 years older than he was. Very few of them had children and, as the years passed, they relied more and more on the author to run errands, do their shopping, walk their dogs and, ultimately, handle their affairs for them. At some point, the author began keeping journals in which he recorded sometimes shocking events as they took place. He also kept many documents and a few tape recordings which supported seemingly impossible violations of the rights of older Americans. In time, caring for the elderly became a crusade that consumed the author's life and the publication of "America's Disposable Generation" is part of that ongoing crusade.
