qMake no mistake; aging in America is warfare. Families suffer, lives are lost prematurely, and incomes are under siege.q a Sharon Sebastian, Author As a guerilla journalist, Sharon Sebastian has written a revealing and explosive book that is blunt, unwavering and authentic with shocking insight and information about aging in America that every reader must know. The book, qAGING: WARNING a Navigating Life's Medical, Mental a Financial Minefields, is an unrelenting, take-no-prisoners exposAc about the malfeasance of both government and the elder care megalopoly. When it comes to families, our aging population and our veterans, no one should attempt to maneuver through the minefields of the medical and elder care industries without being armed with this book. Sebastian warns, qFamilies need to know what they don't know.q While alerting readers to the pitfalls of aging that are being imposed by a profit-driven care industry and lax State and Federal governments, the author builds the case and the argument that once again in America's history, in regard to how we treat our own, it is time for a radical change; it is time for America to reclaim its soul. Sebastian knows that the strongest credential for conveying truth is being on the front lines. That is why, as a guerrilla journalist, she embedded herself in the elder care system from hospitals to nursing homes uncovering a system that is deeply flawed and a liability to the future of the American family. Sharon Sebastian has witnessed it, researched it, and is now sharing it as she openly warns about the perils of aging in her fight for the rights and protections of all Americans. Sebastian gives critical insider knowledge that may help families remain both sane and solvent. It is in response to the appeals of those voices, the voices of the patients and their families that insist that qthe truth must be told, q that Sebastian wrote the book, AGING: WARNING a Navigating Life's Medical, Mental a Financial Minefields. There is no substitute for personal experience coupled with first-hand investigations as source material to give vital insight to families who qneed to know.q The author shares personal experiences and opinions along with those of experts in a variety of fields from research science, law, medicine, care providers, veterans' care, food activists, Whistleblowers and government officials which provoke thought and discussion.
