Overview

Thanks to advances in medical technology, better health care systems, and improvements in lifestyle habits, the twenty-first century brings unprecedented changes in life expectancy and increased numbers of older adults globally. As the elder population grows, so does the knowledge of and interest in gerontology. A burgeoning field, gerontology constantly sees new developments in research, the emergence of areas of study such as financial gerontology and elder ethics, and the introduction of programs and services for the aging. In this comprehensive guide to current topics in aging, Tirrito offers an overview of the issues most critical to those caring for and about the elderly today and in the future.
