Overview

Kandel (Wright State U. School of Medicine) and Adamec, a medical writer, have prepared this general reference for a general readership, which could include aging adults themselves, their family members, or paraprofessional caregivers. An introductory essay surveys issues such as evolving attitudes toward aging, changes in killing diseases, housing, medical advances, demographic statistics in the US and globally, Social Security, psychological issues, and elder abuse. The A-Z entries include relevant organizations, diseases, issues, and medical and social services terminology. Tables of health and population statistics illustrate health care and lifestyle trends among several ethnic groups, and appendices list organizations and agencies.
