Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Aging Education provides educators in aging studies with a unique text that responds to the paucity of instructional strategies and teaching materials. By developing and explaining a multidisciplinary approach to working with older adults in areas related to health, education, ethics, law, cultural competency for a multicultural population, translating social policy into practice, spirituality, and human services, the editors provide an imaginative and thought-provoking unmet need for gerontology educators by providing them with teaching and practice strategies in aging education.

Book News Annotation:

Thirteen American academics and consultants contribute ten chapters, each addressing a specific topic relevant to the study of the aging population. Coverage includes home health and community care services; social welfare problems and policies; mental health issues; Alzheimer's disease spousal caregiver support groups; spirituality; dying, death, grief and loss; retirement options; senior volunteerism; elder abuse; and the elder home care crisis. For use in gerontology/geriatrics degree programs and noncredit workshops offered in different settings, such as hospitals, nursing homes, professional associations, and in-service training.
