This authoritative reference work is the pioneering interdisciplinary resource in gerontology and geriatrics. It contains explanations of hundreds of terms, concepts, and issues related to the lives of older adults, as well as the growing range of programs and services for the elderly provided by the professions, communities, and governmental agencies. The entries were written by invited prominent scholars in biology, medicine, nursing, psychology, psychiatry, sociology, and social services. The style of presentation makes this volume readily accessible to students and professionals from many fields, and is particularly valuable to information-seeking nonspecialists.
