A Comprehensive Review of Innovative Solutions to Address Global Aging Challenges
Meeting the healthcare and social needs of the older population is a personal challenge for millions of Americans and billions more worldwide. It is also a growing global public health challenge. Aging Well is a comprehensive study on how to support the health and well-being of older adults. This book is a must-read for every person caring for aging relatives or loved ones with disabilities.
For those who read and enjoyed Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal, this book is the perfect accompaniment. Aging Well provides intimate glimpses into the real-life challenges facing older adults today such as loneliness, community connection, aging in place, and the need for emergency care in the hospital and the home. Aging Well also offers caregivers, policymakers, and healthcare leaders insights into sustainable models of excellence that can reduce health spending while improving the health, well-being, and quality of life for older adults.

Aging Well outlines eight issues that individuals and families confront when seeking support and inclusion, such as how to find services that are truly person-centered, and ways to best link medical with social care. This book offers compelling expert perspectives that articulate a system of care allowing us all to live well in the place we call ‘home’.”
