Gain a new perspective on the international implications of our aging population!This comprehensive book examines a broad array of international concerns in gerontology. Issues in Global Aging addresses the implications of the rapid growth in elderly populations in both the Third World and industrialized nations including the US, Israel, Pakistan, and the UK. It examines successful policy and programmatic approaches to dealing with the practical needs of older citizens for health care, pensions, work, and personal care.Issues in Global Aging brings together case studies, empirical research, and theoretical exploration of policies and services for the elderly around the world. It also considers the spiritual dimension of aging and the influence of various religious and cultural beliefs on gerontology policy and practice.Issues in Global Aging addresses urgent questions concerning the ever-increasing elderly population, including: what are the economic implications of the demographic shift toward an older population? who is responsible for caring for the elderly in various cultures? how can older people find economic security? how does spiritual practice give older people self-esteem and a sense of personal meaning?Issues in Global Aging is an essential source of fresh thought and useful research for gerontologists, social workers, policymakers, economists, and ministers who work with older people.
