Health promotion makes an important contribution to the knowledge and understanding of the health and well-being of older people. This work focuses on a range of issues which underpin older people's health and identifies ways health can be promoted. It reviews lifestyles, psychological well-being, a creative look at citizenship, grief, sexuality and travel health. Other specific areas include accident prevention, residential homes and productive ageing. The book includes a helpful summary of the steps that can be taken to promote older peoples' health and well-being. It is recommended reading for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of medical sociology, social work, nursing and health studies. Its focus on practical health promotion also makes it relevant to health and social welfare professionals working with older people.
