This unique book studies America's frail older population relative to the elderly in ten other nations. It contains a cross-national assessment of approaches to long-term care for the elderly and explains the nature and extent of current and future problems related to caring for the functionally impaired elderly. By studying and analyzing the ongoing struggles of other nations in their attempts to cope with growing populations of frail elderly, readers in the U.S. can expand the parameters of their own national debate on the subject. The Graying of the World shows the political, economic, and social context in which decisions on elder-care are based and evaluates how successful various countries' programs have been. Chapters outline alternative approaches taken by disparate types of national systems, highlighting unique and creative solutions to provide useful information on new and alternative ways to respond to personal and public issues related to elder-care.
