Description:

Asian Americans, a diverse ethnic group representing over thirty different nationalities, are the fastest growing population among adults 65 years and older. This book fills a void in the existing literature in gerontology by presenting empirical findings on the psychosocial well-being of Asian American elders. Focusing on the six largest Asian American groups (Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese), the volume addresses issues of methodology; physical and mental health; intergenerational relationships and informal support; acculturation and stress; economic well-being; productive aging; and service utilization, such as Medicare, food stamps, physician care, home health care, emergency room and hospital use, and community-based services. It links research findings to policy, practice, and program recommendations, creating a vital resource for use in multiple disciplines, including social work, public health, nursing, geriatric medicine, social policy, and other helping professions.
