The Frontline documentary about assisted living recently
shown on TV, is pretty much what my book is about. My
book gives advice on how to make elder care much better.
These owners of elder care places, make billions from the
elderly. Time to make better living conditions for the elderly.

I sent my manuscript to a publisher who told me: "The book
is quite good. But we just published a book written by a
nurse aide so we really can't publish yours right now."
So a publisher cannot publish more than one book in the
same genre? I have to say I find that hard to believe.
Publishing a book written by a nurse aide is nice, but I
could write from the perspective of both an aide (I was one
for a lot of years) and through the eyes of a Social Services
Director (which is how my books are written). As an aide
one sees just what's on the surface of a nursing home
because aides are not allowed into board of director
meetings nor are they allowed to see the information a
department head is privilege to.
Department heads see the pure, raw greed of having to
please board members. We see the raw greed of the bottom
more important than your Grandma's healthy bottom.
This industry, be it Assisted Living, or a traditional nursing
home, is a billion dollar industry.
If this industry did not spell P-R-O-F-I-T in a
big way, well doctors and corporations would never be
About Assisted Living: I could slap up a fancy building,
charge customers (people living there) $8,000 a month to
live there and not face the big regulations traditional nursing
homes face. Do those nursing home regulations make
traditional ones better? Ha Ha, you wish! But Assisted
Living is worse yet. Those places do not even have to put a
Licensed administrator in place, like traditional ones do. I
know this for a fact because a young (very young) guy who
was my assistant once, and was still learning, went on to be
the head of an Assisted Living place. This guy couldn't take
care of a puppy, much less my Grandma.
You say: "Well I'm just a layman." This is true, but you can
become an informed layman. You can make a difference.
If YOU make a difference, other paying customers will
follow suit right in line with you. Do not ever underestimate
your power as a paying customer. The payment option
makes no difference either, be it private pay, Medicare or
Medicaid. You hate the present nursing home, no one
listens to you? You can choose another. Even if you do
nothing more than read my book, you will be More informed
than before reading it.
I have a problem with kids who just 'dump' Mom or Dad off
and never take time to check on how they are doing. Hey,
Mom and Dad wiped Your butt, fed YOU and made sure
YOU were safe, while growing up. Don't they deserve the
