This comprehensive book gives an up-to-date profile of all aspects
of the care of older people in the community, with particular
emphasis on the importance of maintaining function and independence
as well as health. In a uniquely broad approach, the book is edited
by two family doctors with a particular interest in the elderly and
a consultant geriatrician, and the varied subjects are each
presented by experts in their field. This accessible book enables
primary care teams to produce optimal standards of care in old age,
and is helpful in the organization of preventive care programmes.
Emphasizing the need for joint working, the book draws together
practical knowledge and skills to produce an essential source of
reference and advice for all those involved in delivering a
co-ordinated service. It is essential reading for all doctors in
general practice and in public health, medical students and all
other professionals whose work brings them into contact with
elderly people. It is particularly useful for general practice
teams, allied professionals such as nurses and physiotherapists, as
well as patients and carers seeking an understanding of good
practice. It also contains much practical information vital to the
work of voluntary agencies, social service departments and
specialists in geriatric medicine.
