Aging is a fact of life, and issues surrounding it are hot. There are currently 35 million Americans over the age of sixty-five - more than ever.

Anyone who pays attention to the news today knows how much the elderly and the issues that affect them figure into modern life and politics. This timely volume gathers discussions on aging that are highly relevant both to seniors and to those who care for them, both personally and professionally.^Written by physicians, healthcare professionals, theologians, and ministers, this book explores the experience of aging itself, examines a range of ethical issues that confront seniors today, and offers practical advice on caring for the elderly. Rather than offering dry assessments of the nature of aging, many of the authors instead write out of their own experiences. Their sensitivity and insight into the challenges of growing old will make this book of interest both to care providers and to those who are themselves in the later stages of life.^Contributors: Geoffrey Brown, Jackie Cameron, William Cheshire, John Dunlop, Robert Evans, Stephen Greggo, Vernon Grounds, John F. Kilner, C. Ben Mitchell, Stephen Post, Robert D. Orr, Susan A. Salladay, Linda Treloar, Gregory Waybright.
