The patient on the floor with cardiac arrest is the American economy, and close by are retirement plans, the futures and medical care of millions of older Americans.
However, according to Mary Lou Parks, RN, the author of "Taking the "E" Ride Through The Golden Years--What Can Boomers Expect?," and a gerontologist with considerable professional experience in caring for older Americans, there are many things we must do to lessen the pain in order to enjoy our Golden Years.
No matter how many birthdays you have in your future, you better read this book, particularly, if you are a Baby Boomer born after 1945.
This is Mary Lou's second book, and she minces few words in her exploration of the past, present and future of human care and retirement.

She describes in a very readable and caring way what we can do to help improve this picture.
