Summary
The caregiving systems and institutions in all countries of the world are being constantly challenged as we experience myriad social and cultural changes. Family Care of the Elderly focuses upon these care systems and explores the consequences of cultural change upon traditional caregiving. The introductory chapter provides a theoretical framework for understanding the differences between the countries and identifies consistent trends. The chapters that follow are organized according to the degree of development of the countries presented, and address the following topics: traditional characteristics; societal changes; consequences of the changes; and responses to the changes. Specific issues addressed include programs and services supporting family caregiving; institutional care; perceived responsibilities by government, private sector, religion, family, etc.; and public policies affecting the elderly. Using this framework, the reader will easily compare the policies and programs within the various countries. A concluding chapter points to variations and similarities between countries and examines future implicationsv of a changing world and family caregiving
