Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia E. H. Vermeersch, B.S., M.S., PhD., RN (Wright State University)
Description: This is a comprehensive introduction to gerontological nursing.
Purpose: Although the title suggests a major emphasis on healthy aging, the purpose is to present common problems of aging (both from aging changes and disease) and illuminate how nurses can help make these changes bearable for the older adult in primarily long-term care settings.
Audience: Nurses in practice, education, and lower administration will find this a useful introduction to the many facets of gerontological nursing.
Features: Quotes from the older adult and his or her caregiver at the beginning of each chapter provide a brief look at the lived experience. Chapters with particular strength are those that cover nursing roles, documentation, assessment tools, medications, and life space options. These are usually lacking in other similar texts.
Assessment: This is a fine book useful for a comprehensive introduction to the many facets of gerontological nursing. Although it is not particularly unique compared to similar texts, it is up-to-date for the most part and contains many useful interventions in easy-to-read tables and appendixes.
