The second edition of Public Health and Aging is a must-read book in the developing field of public health and aging. --American Public Health Association This] book provides an understanding of the physical, mental, and social functioning domains that affect older persons and how these affect quality of life. This is a valuable addition to the growing field of public health and aging." --Doody's This book promotes the development and maintenance of optimal physical, mental, and social functioning, irrespective of acquired diseases and with due recognition of the senescent changes that accompany late life. Updated, revised, and significantly expanded, this second edition contains new chapters that examine chronic disease, long-term care, and ethical issues in public health and aging. The book also serves as a resource to health professionals and students, delineating what measures health care professionals can take to help elderly populations not only maintain but optimise their health." -- The Lamp The health care industry has continued its efforts to promote health and prevent disease among elderly populations. In this book, however, the authors argue that simple health promotion and disease prevention are not enough to address the many challenges of aging-whether it entails being physically frail, living with dementia, or approaching death. Instead, the unique focus of this groundbreaking text centers on maximizing function and well-being for the elderly.
