Summary
"Gerontological Practice for the Twenty-first Century meets the need for state-of-the-art information on practice approaches with older patients that are age-specific and empirically based, blend micro and macro views, and reflect current themes in the aging and social work fields. The authors provide an expert and comprehensive review of the current literature and focus on issues relating to the most vulnerable older people. Gerontological Practice for the Twenty first Century also features case illustrations throughout and brief end-of-chapter questions for review."--Jacket
