Ageing, Health and Care provides an international, up-to-date perspective on health and ageing, as well as a comprehensive overview of the health status and experiences of older people. Written by a leader in the field, this textbook covers key questions, such as the fitness of older people in the future, the widening inequalities in the health of older people, and the extent to which health in old age reflects habits and behavior in earlier life. The book includes chapters on physical health, mental health, disability, and lifestyle. Additionally, it offers a synthesis of current policy developments relating to health and social care for older people, and it examines the key debates on the future of health care for the elderly.
