Health Promotion for the Elderly

July 2012 | 192 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

The decentralization of health care and the aging of the baby boomers point to a critical need for health provider information on prevention and health promotion for the elderly. This book provides a foundation for understanding the requirements and goals, as well as both individual and community models that have been developed for health promotion in the elderly. The authors provide an overview of health promotion needs and objectives for aging populations and address health promotion for risk reduction, individual models for health promotion, and community models for health promotion.

"This book is well organized and very readable. Because of the increasing numbers of older Americans, this would be an excellent book for all health care providers to add to their libraries."
