In this new edition, the readibility has been enhanced with streamlined text, added subheadings, introductions, and conclusions to each chapter. The special needs of the elderly in all health care settings is the unifying element of this book. It emphasizes a balance of theory, clinical application of knowledge, and clinical skills in caring for the older adult population, and focuses on the practical components for their comprehensive rehabilitation. This book addresses and incorporates aspects of prevention, fitness, and wellness into the rehabilitative model of care for elders with and without pathological conditions.A three-part organization covers demographic trends and aging theories, presents a comprehensive consideration of patient care concepts, and details administration and management topics. The most exciting change to the 3rd edition is the inclusion of Evidence Based Medicine (EMB) interventions throughout. EBM treatment suggestions are given for a myriad of diagnoses.nbsp;For physical and occupational therapists, rehabilitation nurses, physiatrists, gerontological physicians and nurse specialists, administrators, nutritionists, and community care organizers and educators.
