Aging in the CommunityBook - 2013
As 78 million boomers turn 66 years old at a clip of 10,000 a day, old age is about to get better! The generation that launched the Civil Rights and the women's movements and protested the Vietnam War has a track record of creating positive social change. Now they are focused on aging and the places in which we age. Because many have watched their parents struggle to stay in their family homes or saw them wither away in nursing homes - lonely, bored, and often helpless - they are determined to find a better way. In this anthology, editor Janice Blanchard brings together the perspectives of visionaries, practitioners, and pioneering elders who are helping forge an exciting new paradigm - "aging in community."
