The Chronically Disabled Elderly in Society (Contributions to the Study of Aging)

by Merna J. Alpert

Publisher: Greenwood Press
Publication Date: Thursday, June 30, 1994
Number of Pages: 160
ISBN: 0313291098


Book Summary:
In this period of upheaval of our nation's health care system, this timely work serves to increase awareness of and knowledge about the problems of societal living among the chronically disabled elderly. To meet the goal of optimal social functioning of the chronically disabled, past and present attitudes and practices of education, health care, and social service providers need to be examined and in many cases changed or discarded. Focusing on macro and micro contexts--and using examples to highlight actual experiences and processes--the need for a comprehensive approach to chronic disabling conditions is illustrated. This work has important implications for institutions of education in health and social sciences, policy makers in health care and social services, advocacy groups for the elderly and disabled, and individuals and families facing the care of the chronically disabled.
