Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Barbara Jean Billek-Sawhney, PT, EdD, MS, GCS(Slippery Rock University)
Description:This book, now in its fourth-edition, serves as an entry-level book for rehabilitation professionals. It was originally published in 1985.
Purpose:It is intended as an introductory level book and covers a wide variety of topics from theories of aging to home care. The objectives are of importance for entry-level rehabilitation professionals such as occupational, physical, recreational, or speech therapists and nurses and other allied health professionals. Generally, the book does meet the objectives.
Audience:According to the author, the book is intended for practitioners and students in the area of geriatric rehabilitation. It would be useful for entry-level therapists, assistants, and allied-health professionals. The author is well recognized in the area of geriatric physical therapy.
Features:The 20 chapters are grouped into three different sections. It starts out with basic information on the theories and psychosocial aspects of aging. From there it addresses various physical aspects of aging from communication to sensory to musculoskeletal and other areas. The final section encompasses topics such as nutrition, pharmacotherapy, sexuality, Medicare documentation, clinical research, stress, among other topics. The chapter on musculoskeletal changes with age and clinical implications provides a comprehensive overview and includes interventions. Not addressed in this book, but of great importance in the healthcare challenge of aging, are the integumentary system and wounds, restraints, and vestibular concerns. Fall-risk assessment is touched upon only lightly. The case studies are well written and support the material discussed in the chapter.
Assessment:This book expands upon information presented in the former text. i.e., home care and intervention concepts for the institutionalized elderly. The book is of high quality but would be further enhanced by expanding on the discussion of certain areas and including the actual assessment tools. These include things like the mini-mental status examination, the Berg, the Timed up and Go, and the Functional Reach. In addition, images of how vision or pictures are distorted with sensory changes associated with various visual pathologies would enhance the readers' understanding of the visual impairment. Overall, the book is a valuable resource for entry-level rehabilitation professionals.
From The Critics
New edition of a text that provides an interdisciplinary approach to the assessment and rehabilitative management of the elderly. With a focus upon the clinical aspects, the 20 chapters provide basic information about this age group and suggest ways to implement rehabilitation goals in a variety of care settings. Topics include theories of aging and the psychosocial and physiological dimensions, and related issues such as drugs, stress, sexuality, exercise, illness, and death and dying. New features include revisions that reflect the language of the APTA's Guide to Physical Therapy Practice, chapters on home healthcare and special considerations in a changing healthcare environment, case studies, alternative medications, standardized norms for musculoskeletal strength, and Medicare reimbursement issues.
