"Aging and Chronic Disease" provides new perspectives on how aging is affected by chronic disease. The book focuses on how chronic disorders, such as diabetes, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, and cancer influence stress, coping, and quality of life among older adults. The book emphasizes how management of risk factors for chronic diseases, new treatment and rehabilitation outcomes, social support, and patient education can reduce health care costs and improve coping strategies, quality of life, and longevity of older adults. Covering a wide range of topics from health care disparities, costs, new trends in disease risk factors, cognitive changes in older adults, and disability outcomes, this book will be relevant to a wide range of professionals and students in the fields of gerontology, public health, mental health, social work, health administration, and social sciences.
