Overview

The contributors represent diverse disciplines, however their messages create a coherent, integrated work of universal interest and application. I highly recommend the use of this text for allied health students who are studying geriatric rehabilitation and for clinicians who wish to renew their knowledge.”—Carole Knight, MEd, OTR/L, Occupational Therapy in Health Care Journal, Volume 16, Number 2/3 February 2003, review of the 2nd Edition.

The ideal resource for rehabilitation professionals who are working with or preparing to work with older adults! It describes the normal aging process, illustrates how health and social factors can impede an aging person’s abilities, and demonstrates how to develop mechanisms for maximizing the well-being of older adults.
