Age Discrimination Takes Its Toll by Paula Span, January 12, 2012, 12:07 pm:"Raise your hand if you've felt that people treat you with less respect or courtesy than others, that they act as if you're not smart, that you get poorer service in stores and restaurants than others in short, if you've felt discriminated against because of age, gender, ethnicity, income, disability, appearance, even marital status. A startling proportion of older people report that they've experienced discrimination: 63 percent, in a study recently published in Research on Aging. The most commonly cited cause? "Thirty percent report being mistreated because of their age," said the lead author Ye Luo, a Clemson University sociologist. Perceived discrimination because of gender, race or ancestry, disabilities or appearance followed in smaller proportion"

Humobile: A Caregiver's Guide to the Human Mechanical Machine by Dolores M. Monahan:"Humobile is a book designed to assist a person/family (especially babyboomers) with a sick or injured loved one at home, especially if they do not have any family to help or lack basic nursing/healthcare knowledge and skills. It is also designed to assist home health aides, nursing aides, assistant living aides, nursing students, medical assistants, or even seasoned medical or preventaive health care practitioners with the activities of daily living for the person who they are taking care of. In other words, it gives the "why" behind the "what" you are doing for the home patient and shows you how to "safely" take care of yourself and your loved one or home patient. It is written in simple terminology, which leads to easy reading and understanding. It describes the correlationship between a human body and an automobile in relationship to being "good working mechanical machines or run down old jalopies."

The Dark Side Of Caring: Challenges Of Caregiving:"The meaning of disability on perception of self-worth as a nurse was identified through this qualitative study of disabled registered nurses. A metaphor emerged depicting the phenomena of the lived experience of disabled nurses. The results indicate that by creating a caring environment, nurse administrators can encourage disabled RNs to return to nursing practice."

Coalition of Women in Long Term Care (COWL):"Long term healthcare (LTC) is, in many respects, a women's issue. Women comprise 75% of the nursing home resident population, 97% of professional long term caregivers and the vast majority of family members caring for relatives at home. This demographic reality gives rise to a lot of issues, from healthcare delivery to pay equity and fringe benefits. Ironically, but not surprisingly, the majority of leadership and policy-making positions, both in long term care and in government, are occupied by men. The question becomes: How can we bring women's unique perspectives and situations, as they pertain to long term care, to the full attention of the board rooms, the legislatures, and the executive agencies of the government?"

See also: Nov. 26, 2002: North Carolina: Who cares about caregiving? It's not a disease or disability. It's the future of health care:"Today it isn't bad enough that our society marginalizes our elders. Caregiving itself is treated as a disease or disability, and the caregiver is often alienated, neglected and even shunned. It's been my experience that most people don't want to get too close to a caregiver on a regular basis. Much of our lives is not our own, and we are forced to decide which relationships, social engagements and interests to sustain and which to drop. And, let's face it, sometimes we are too exhausted or depressed to be fun company."
