Families and Aging, Hardback Book


The experiences of both families and aging are changing in today's society.

Many of us are staying healthier and living longer. Because an unprecedented number of Americans will be over age 65 in the twenty-first century, the aging experience will be felt by many and permeate our family life and society.

Patricia Drentea's Families and Aging examines how the changing lifestyles of Americans will play into aging well.

It explores the life course transitions that occur as individuals and families age within the current U.S. context. The text is written from a sociological perspective, but it is interdisciplinary and can be used by many fields such as gerontology, social work, human development, and family studies.
