The high societal and personal costs of abandoning America's aging population are examined during this program that features case studies of different family crises. One woman tries to explain why she left her 80-year-old father stricken with Alzheimer's disease in a stadium. This was an especially offensive case since the man was confined to a wheelchair and no longer able to even speak or cry out for help. Segments also focus on the high cost of providing adequate medical care to the elderly and the questionable futures that face nursing homes and hospitals.
