This volume evaluates a range of assessment measures with regard to older adults. The expert contributors address topics such as assessment of health, functional disability (ADLs), mental agility, aging and personality, depression, and pain. While the instruments themselves are readily available from other sources, this book discusses the suitability, strengths, and weaknesses of various measures and offers current information on the rapidly changing, state-of-the-art assessment technology.
