After some prompting, I’m starting a non-fiction book on the problems people with disabilities face. I, for one, am tired of the books in the marketplace that are written about the disabled from an able-bodied point of view. I want to share some experiences (mine, as well as others) that the disabled face in western society. While there is always pending legislation intended to create a level playing field, there isn’t a lot of acceptance within our society. There is a lot of push-back by businesses on accommodation issues, problems within the Social Security disability benefits system, and a great number of issues specific to the nursing home/rehabilitation facility industry.
I’m in the process of writing the outline. Any feedback on topics you think should be included in this book would be appreciated!
Some of the topics I intend to include are:
- Medical Care
- Institutional Care
