Summary: By the end of the current decade, many baby boomers will be senior citizens. What policies should we enact to prepare for an aging society?

In the coming decade, we have a unique opportunity to create new and better aging policies. This collection of twenty essays by prominent educators, researchers, and policy analysts in the field of gerontology brings together innovative ideas from the United States, Europe, and Japan.

Instead of focusing on
utopian dreams, these exciting proposals are based on policy changes that may well be attainable in the next ten years. The vital concerns addressed in Advancing Aging Policy as the 21st Century Begins include work and retirement issues, the aging prison population, long-term care, Latino elders, transportation, death and dying issues, and the aging of the baby boom generation.

Advancing Aging Policy as the 21st Century Begins explores:
  • innovative policies and care arrangements around the world
  • the importance of a strong economy that provides opportunities for seniors who seek them and support for those who need it
  • the need for flexible retirement and employment policies for older adults
  • the connections between family policy and aging policy
  • the importance of improving training and compensation for workers in long-term care
  • the special needs of our diverse and rapidly growing population of older people
  • the importance of focusing aging policy on people rather than on programs
This forward-looking book on policy and aging in the coming decade puts the experience and insight of leaders in the field from around the world in your hands. Policymakers, educators, and students of gerontology will find it an invaluable resource.
