The number of people in this country over the age of 65 is expected to rise dramatically in the coming years. As Baby Boomers age, many require assistance ranging from transportation for daily errands to round-the-clock medical care. Younger people face difficult choices in caring for aging family members and helping them select the best assistance and living options. From choosing between assisted living or nursing homes and paying for costly prescriptions and health care to resolving sibling squabbles over caring for an elderly parent and facing difficult end-of-life decisions, "The Encyclopedia of Elder Care" serves as a comprehensive and objective guide for students and professionals alike. In more than 250 entries, this new book relies on statistical information to paint a picture of aging and its key issues in the United States and around the globe. Appendixes provide statistical data, directories of resources, and helpful information on planning and caring for the elderly.
