This text provides information on nursing care of older adults. Starting with the basics, it uses a systems approach to describe the aging process across the health care continuum from wellness to illness. Physiological and psychosocial aspects of aging are described in detail. Plus, its many assessment tools and greater use of the nursing process serves as a framework for providing care. It presents research and theory-based coverage of aging, discussions of normal aging and the clinical problems associated with aging, chapters on pharmacology and nutrition, plus guidance on care in a variety of settings, including acute and long-term care, and in the community.
