Beschreibung:

Most individuals in the growing elderly population very much want to remain independent. But many, due to the higher rates of illness or incapacity in the later decades of life, will require some degree of support or assistance in order to do so. Some will be what we now term "frail"--and it is that segment that this book addresses. Cox's discussion is informative and sensitive. The work examines the many creative ways in which communities devise responses to the special needs and problems of their frail members. Cox considers the key issues involved in frailty, including its prevention. Health care, housing, protection, caregiving, and public policy approaches are all addressed. This book will guide future discussions of communities' obligations to the frail elderly.
