Description

Written by leading international experts, this book helps students and practitioners to better understand and cater for the needs of our ageing population. It examines: how services can be provided to meet the expectations and needs of a growing population of ageing citizens within a cost-effective, social justice and positive ageing framework how resources allocated to aged care can be distributed equitably to better meet the demands associated with housing, retirement, service provision and care how health promotion principles can contribute to a healthy older population. Investigating current critical debates in health and social science, the book explores innovative new approaches to aged care and ageing. By using international examples and a multidisciplinary approach, this comprehensive textbook provides a broad understanding of ageing from a social perspective and analyzes concepts of ageism, healthy ageing and positive ageing.
