Long-Term Care in an Aging Society: Choices and Challenges for the '90s
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This thoughtful collection based on a highly successful conference held in Calgary, Alberta, combines the views of professional gerontologists, educators, health-care specialists, and policy makers to confront the issues affecting health care for older adults in both Canada and the United States. The contributors seek not only to inform but to inspire innovative responses from the private as well as the public sector. Experts in government, ageing, medicine, public administration, social service, counselling, and consulting focus their attention on vital areas of concern to elders who are in need of assistance, to the providers of these services, and to a public who seeks assurance that its resources are cost-effectively allocated to meet present and future demand. Included are essays on the current status of health-care policy in the United States and Canada, daily money management, caring for the non-compliant elder, long-term care as an emerging women's issue, lobbying government agencies and political leaders, the role of gerontology in resolving the crisis of long-term care, and "geroethics".
