Overview

"This updated text covers concepts of normal and abnormal aging processes, with an emphasis on the normal aging process and a wellness lifestyle. With a strong clinical practice emphasis, it focuses on providing the specialized skills needed to meet the needs of elderly patients.

"The chapters are well-organized and presented in logical order using vocabulary that is easily understood. The learning objectives, summaries, case studies and discussion, and sample questions further enhance student learning. The presentation of the normal aging process according to system changes and emphasis on health promotion lifestyles and activities is excellent. In addition, the strong focus on application of theory affords the student the opportunity to better prepare for the NCLEX Exam." — J. B, RN, MSN, State University of New York, College at Brockport"
