Summary

With this comprehensive, wellness-oriented gerontology text, your students will learn that advanced age is not synonymous with infirmity. Organized around the functional consequences theory of gerontological nursing, the book examines age-related changes rather than diseases and conditions. The emphasis of this clear, reader-friendly text is on helping patients, residents, and clients remain healthy and functional to maintain the best possible quality of life. Book jacket.
