This book will be an invaluable resource for policy advocates, program planners, and service delivery agents. It examines major pieces of legislation currently impacting the field of aging and the lives of older adults and addresses philosophical, historical, and demographic challenges they face. Jurkowski also adumbrates major service areas for older adults, identifying how each major mandated program addresses these programs and services.
The book will also help graduate students in social work, public health, and gerontology, building their understanding of policy development through a critical analysis and review of policy frameworks. This book, unlike others, focuses on triangulating skills, policies, and programs and blends a social welfare and public health approach to the text's conceptual design.
