Although written for nonphysicians, offers a vivid and thorough picture of the day-to-day problems of elderly individuals and couples and suggests help and solutions. The concrete and specific text is seasoned with relevant and pithy quotations and illustrative short case summaries. Appendixes include a name-address list of organizations offering help, checklists for evaluating nursing homes and homemaker-health aide services, and tabulations of common complaints, symptoms, and diseases. Could be a helpful introduction for medical students and residents lacking a clear and wide grasp of what it means to live as an old person.
