Later-Life Social Support and Service Provision in Diverse and
Vulnerable Populations offers current, multidisciplinary
perspectives on social support and service provision to older
Americans. The chapters trace how our understanding of social
support among older adults has developed over the past 40 years and
explore current gerontological research in the area. They consider
how informal care arrangements articulate with formal long-term
care policies and programs to provide support to the diverse
population of older Americans. They also emphasize heterogeneity in
the composition of support networks, particularly in relation to
gender, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, and immigrant status.
Collectively, the chapters provide insight into the complexity of
older adult's social support networks that can be used to improve
the services provided to caregivers and care recipients as well as
the policies that promote high-quality support to people of all
ages who are in need of assistance.
