For every person who has an aging parent - this DVD is a must!
5 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

(LOS ANGELES) Debby and Ken Bitticks were charged with the responsibility, like many in the "sandwich generation" today, of caring for their parents. Both their aging fathers moved into their home and they hired help to care for them while they worked. Ken's father needed to be rescued from an abusive and dishonest caregiver. They were horrified when they realized that elder abuse is a growing epidemic. Unfortunately, stories of elder abuse are becoming more and more prevalent across the country.

"People over age 60 make up only one-eighth of the U.S. population, yet they constitute one of every three scam victims," writes Sid Kirchheimer, an adviser to AARP. Telephone ploys, identity theft, get-rich-quick schemes, sweepstakes prizes—today's hucksters have a wide-ranging repertoire of tricks in their bag.

Ed Asner, Art Linkletter, Michael Reagan, LAPD Police Chief William Bratton, L.A. Public Health Director Jonathan Fielding, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and a host of others join Debby Bitticks and Dorothy Breininger of Delphi Health Products, Inc. in a new documentary, "Saving Our Parents", which launches this month, April 2008.

Hosted and narrated by Emmy & Golden Globe winner Ed Asner, and produced and directed by Emmy winner Jeff MacIntyre, the DVD's mission is to protect the aging population of the country and help adult children care for their aging parents. Interviewees tell shocking stories of families deceived by predators and offer life-saving information from the country's most trusted experts on the topic. Segments include:  Predatory caregivers and crooked conservators  Financial scam artists  Neglectful nursing homes and generations living together  Hoarding disorders that pose health risks  Michael Reagan's transformational experience with his father, former president Ronald Reagan and Alzheimer's Disease  Tips from Marc Hankin, Elder Abuse Attorney  Inspirational tips for safe and healthy aging
