From Library Journal
One-third of American elders live alone, some without solid support networks of relatives and friends and often facing daily medical, social, and psychological obstacles. This book's goal is to help families, caregivers, friends, and neighbors recognize some of the issues that put elders at risk and provide suggestions for appropriate assistance. Topics include the uncooperative elder, drug misuse, financial concerns, nutrition, and the physical challenges of vision loss, hearing loss, and reduced mobility. There also are chapters on the importance of exercise, the dangers of quackery, and the needs of caregivers. A real hodgepodge! Since this publication attempts to address so many kinds of issues and audiences, its function and usefulness is not always clear. In addition, some chapters, such as the one on the "uncooperative elder," are confusing, negative, and filled with dated information and examples. The chapter citations consist of too many popular magazine articles and obsolete research studies. Lacking authoritativeness, cohesiveness, and currency, this book is not recommended.
