Description/Summary

Alison Kris and Sally Gerard (with S. Fisher) are contributing authors, "Health Status of the Older Adult Population."

Alison Kris is a contributing author, "Understanding Older Adults: US and Global Perspectives"

Book description: Why focus on the negative aspects of growing old while most older adults are leading positive, fulfilling, and active lives even while dealing with the changes associated with aging and chronic illnesses? Promote healthy aging; learn what it means to age successfully; and develop the tools and resources that can optimize well-being during the later years in life with the guidance you'll find inside. The author, a nationally recognized expert in the field of gerontology addresses the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of older adults based on a holistic, mid-range nursing theory of successful aging. Contributions from healthcare professionals in exercise physiology, nutrition, pharmacy and elder law help you understand how these disciplines work together to benefit patients.
