Any student who plans to care for elderly clients should keep this text within easy reach! Now in its third edition, this comprehensive text examines all aspects of physiological and psychosocial functioning specific to older adults. Completely revised and updated, the text reviews the causes of dysfunction, emphasizes wellness, and effectively explains nursing interventions that improve a client's level of functioning. The author's practical Functional Consequences Theory enables nurses to target gerontological care to improve quality of life. Coverage includes a helpful introduction, and the latest on psychosocial functioning, physiologic functioning, and comfort and pleasure. Each chapter features strong pedagogy, including case studies, nursing care plans, chapter summaries, and critical thinking questions.
