AnnotationThe author challenges our attitudes to ageing and the aged, in the firm belief that the community and family must care. The book sets out to describe ways in which older people, their relatives and friends may be aided to live more satisfying lives when problems loom. The problems of old age require "informed management", rather than just "treatment". The philosophy behind this management is set out, and practical aspects of obtaining help are outlined. (RH).
