AnnotationThe status, effectiveness, and social consequences of current public policy and services for older people in the United States (US) are analysed. The author analyses recent experience in implementing the Older Americans Act and other policies designed to assist older people, and argues that, despite their good intent, these policies and programmes have resulted in the isolation, stigmatisation, and general dependency of the older population.
