About this title


The 1974 George C. Polk Award exposé that blew the lid off the incredibly lucrative nursing home industry, showing how it exploited America's old people and defrauded us all. Reissued with a behind the scenes look at how the powerful chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Long-Term Care tried to kill the book. As relevant today for long-term care and health care in general as it was when it first came out. Fraud, swindles, corruption, organized crime-bigger today than ever-the better part of a trillion dollars a year, and just as hidden as it was forty years ago.

About the Author:

Mary Adelaide Mendelson (1917-1997) was a nursing home consultant to the Federation for Community Planning of Cleveland for ten years prior to the publication of "Tender Loving Greed." A native of Grand Rapids, Michigan, she held a B.A. from Radcliffe and an M.A. in political science from the University of Michigan. She was one of the few private citizens asked to appear before a closed session of the Ways and Means Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives. She also testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Long-Term Care; and worked with the Subcommittee on Government Operations, as well as with Health, Education, and Welfare (now HHS). With the initial release of "Tender Loving Greed," she received accolades worldwide for her efforts to protect the elderly. She continued to testify in Washington; and was continuing her researches into the long-term care system up to her death.
