About this book

Introduction

Since the first edition of this book was published the population profile for the elderly has continued to swell. How many elderly people are there? Where are they now? How well off are they? The new edition answers these and many more key questions and takes a fresh look at approaches to planning future health care. The original text has been updated throughout and there are suggestions for additional reading at the end of each chapter. The future of our ageing society is considered in depth, alongside the necessity to prepare nurses to meet the inevitable future health needs of the elderly.
