Encyclopedia of Aging and Public Health
Welcome to the homepage of Encyclopedia of Aging and Public Health, a comprehensive reference work from Springer.
This work takes a biopsychosocial approach to the complexities of its subject. In-depth introductory contributions include coverage on a historical and demographic overview of aging in America, a guide to biological changes accompanying aging, an analysis of the diversity of the U.S. elder population, legal issues commonly affecting older adults, and the ethics of using cognitively impaired elders in research. These entries are written at a level that is accessible to professionals and to the lay public with an interest in these issues.
