Overview

"Aging is one of the new textbooks you will find that covers the health-care management of the older person for the entire allied health team....Although Aging was written to meet the needs of students and clinicians in rehabilitation, it also would be a suitable read for anyone who cares or makes decisions for an older adult." -- Advance for LPNs, October 21, 2002"Although this text is written from the framework of the American health care system, it is relevant to practitioners in Canada as well. The case studies and examples that are shared are comprehensive and inclusive of various challenges faced by the elderly, those working in geriatrics, and the systems that support this work. This book offers a useful baseline for occupational therapists to use in their geriatric rehabilitation practice." -- Marie Nelson, Volume 70, Number 1, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, February 2003This classic textbook provides an interdisciplinary approach to the assessment and rehabilitative management of older persons. Clinically focused, it suggests strategies for implementing practical rehabilitation goals in a variety of care settings.
