Summary
  • For much of the developed world, health care for a surging elderly population looms as one of the most daunting problems of the coming decade. In A World Growing Old, contributors from diverse disciplinary backgrounds and countries discuss resource allocation for the elderly and debate plans for the years ahead. Essays focus on five general issues: the meaning of old age, the goals of medicine and health care for the elderly, the balance between the needs of the young and old, the pressures of other social priorities, and the role of families, especially the burden on women, in long-term care
  • In consideration of the difficult moral and practical issues involved, the editors conclude the volume with a special report containing policy recommendations from representatives of eight countries (the United States, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom). This important volume will be of interest to policy-makers and a broad spectrum of health care professionals, as well as to anyone interested in the fate of the elderly or in coming health care challenges
