Synopsis

Aging in the Right Place is the most up-to-date and comprehensive resource covering the impact of residential and care settings in older adults. Providing a complete overview of current living arrangements and residential options for older adults, this text also offers a unique perspective on the often overlooked emotional challenges aging adults face when their residential needs must be evaluated. Placing particular value on the experiences and opinions of older adults while also covering the objective recommendations of aging experts, author Stephen Golant, Ph.D. introduces a new framework of “residential normalcy” to assist an aging population in identifying their best housing and care options.

Covering virtually every aspect of residential environments in elder care through an expansive range of topics (from government healthcare policies and programs to case studies, opinions, stories, and quotes that illustrate the diverse experiences of today’s older adults), Aging in the Right Place also points out housing and care topics that need further research, reform, support, and public awareness. Written by a gerontologist with over 30 years in the field (and personal experience as a family caregiver) this cohesive text is essential for gerontology, long-term care, and healthcare professionals, practitioners, and academics.
