So much transition in the elder world

Not one day goes by when I am not surprised by the changes that take place in the world of elders. It is only when the world turns against them that I get angry; taking advantage of old people is not showing them any respect. The rest of the world certainly does not follow my motto of With Age Comes Respect!
I have seen the worst of the worst when it comes to human character. Take for instance when Medicaid can be billed more when an elder is having blood drawn and blood infused at the same time. Or perhaps when the rent for a rent controlled apartment goes up approximately two-thirds in one month’s time creating such feelings of panic and sadness that just the thought could ruin the future for people not equipped to dole out such funds. What is HUD thinking when they offer to ‘help?’
These things are in addition to frequent falls, illness and failing body parts. The aches and pains should be more than enough for the aging, but then they have to deal with the rest of the crap that this world just seems to have to dole out. I don’t understand it and probably never will. It’s just too darn bad that I can’t clone myself so that I could fill the world with people who care – not care about the bottom line!
