CONTENTThis new edition (the first was published in 2010) features 664 alphabetical entries covering diseases and conditions, drugs, organizations, adaptive devices, and issues of interest to seniors. More than 70 entries are new, and 229 have been updated, authored by health-care practitioners, medical writers, and academics. All entries have references and definitions of key terms in sidebars. Questions that readers should ask practitioners also appear in sidebars, and there are tables and color photographs. Coverage of such topics as end-of-life planning and Medicare coverage and such assistive aids as canes, walkers, and wheelchairs make this a very useful resource for anyone concerned with the care of the aging. The rapidly growing population of seniors will make this an essential resource for most public libraries.
