Aging and caregiving: theory, research, and policy
This book provides human service practitioners, policy makers, researchers and students with a comprehensive analysis of the role and function of family caregiving in societies with dependent elderly populations. It begins with an overview of theoretical, conceptual and methodological issues in caregiving. A number of empirical studies which address these issues are then presented. Finally the contributors explore the implications for social policy resulting from our understanding of caregiving knowledge, identify gaps and provide new studies which address these gaps, give direction to practice interventions and illuminate implications for public policy.
