Description

In this multidisciplinary text, noted leaders from a variety of fields provide students and professionals with a big picture approach to the best possible care for today's growing aging population. Addressing the extensive concerns that have arisen out of an increased life expectancy and the "elder-boom" of aging baby boomers, the contributors point to changing care and housing needs; health, mental health, and wellness concerns; and financial, ethical, and legal issues in elder care.

Contributors include Eileen Chichin, Catherine DeLorey, Marshall Kapp, Gary Kennedy, William Smith, Patricia Miller, and Thomas Campbell Jackson.
