Communication disorders in aging
This book concentrates not only on the various communication disorders primarily affecting older adults, but also upon aspects of ageing that have an impact on caring services and strategies. The topics covered are those described by professionals who provide services to the communicatively impaired elderly as those most critical for both practising professionals and students who are preparing to serve the growing population of ageing persons.
