Overview

Community Resources for Older Adults: Programs and Services in an Era of Change, Fourth Edition, by Robbyn Wacker and Karen Roberto, provides an in-depth review of policy and programs for the "aging network," answering such key questions as "How have programs for older adults evolved?" "Who uses these resources?" "How are they delivered?" and "What challenges do service providers face in meeting the needs of the aging baby-boom generation?"

To give students the foundational knowledge they need to meet the needs of their older clients, the authors provide a theoretical framework for understanding the forces that shape older adults' likelihood to seek assistance, include in-depth reviews of the current body of empirical literature in each program area, and discuss the challenges programs and services will face in the future.
