Summary

A must-have reference for practitioners and a comprehensive overview for students of gerontology, social work, and public health, this fully updated edition of a highly successful text offers up-to-date information on the changing health plans available to the elderly today.

With the modifications in Medicare plans and the addition of new prescription drug policies, choosing which plans are right for your patients, helping decipher the language and implications that the changes have on the older population, and understanding what these amendments to the old Medicare plan will mean for future Medicare users can be daunting.

To help figure it out is Donald Gelfand's newest addition to the gerontological literature. The 6th edition of The Aging Network not only highlights the primary components of specific programs and services to emphasize the most recent and important changes, but explores the varying demographics of the elderly population and how these factors will affect what plans people will choose. It provides an overview of the Older Americans Act, and breaks out the various aspects of older living-from health and mental health to employment, legal assistance, and housing-that the new plans will transform.
