Leisure and Aging: Ulyssean Living in Later Life
As the baby boomers grow older, there is a growing need for leisure professionals to understand the aging process and its relationship to leisure. In Leisure And Aging, the authors introduce the reader to aging and leisure and examines leisure's role in later life. The first section provides an introduction to the aging process, with chapters on biological, psychological, and social aspects. The second section specifically analyzes leisure in later life with chapters examining the role of leisure, leisure time, and leisure constraints. The final section of the book discusses environments and contexts where leisure occurs, such as in the community, the long-term care facility, and the retirement community.
