Book Description :

In 1986 Dr. David Snowdon, one of the world’s leading experts on Alzheimer’s disease, embarked on a revolutionary scientific study that would forever change the way we view aging—and ultimately living. Dubbed the “Nun Study” because it involves a unique population of 678 Catholic sisters, this remarkable long-term research project has made headlines worldwide with its provocative discoveries. Yet Aging with Grace is more than a groundbreaking health and science book. It is the inspiring human story of these remarkable women—ranging in age from 74 to 106—whose dedication to serving others may help all of us live longer and healthier lives. Totally accessible, with fascinating portraits of the nuns and the scientists who study them, Aging with Grace also offers a wealth of practical findings: • Why building linguistic ability in childhood may protect against Alzheimer’s • Which ordinary foods promote longevity and healthy brain function • Why preventing strokes and depression is key to avoiding Alzheimer’s • What role heredity plays, and why it’s never too late to start an exercise program • How attitude, faith, and community can add years to our lives A prescription for hope, Aging with Grace shows that old age doesn’t have to mean an inevitable slide into illness and disability; rather it can be a time of promise and productivity, intellectual and spiritual vigor—a time of true grace.

Book Description :

The number of Americans eligible to receive Social Security benefits will increase from forty-five million to nearly eighty million in the next twenty years. Retirement systems must therefore adapt to meet the demands of the largest aging population in our nation’s history. In Developments in the Economics of Aging, David A. Wise and a distinguished group of analysts examine the economic issues that will confront policy makers as they seek to design policies to protect the economic and physical health of these older Americans. The volume looks at such topics as factors influencing work and retirement decisions at older ages, changes in life satisfaction associated with retirement, and the shift in responsibility for managing retirement assets from professional money managers of traditional pension plans to individual account holders of 401(k)s. Developments in the Economics of Aging also addresses the complicated relationship between health and economic status, including why health behaviors vary across populations and how socioeconomic measures correlate with health outcomes.

Everyone over 50 years of age must read it. It contains many practical ways to live life after fifty with significance and great joy … It certainly shows that we will still count in life and can make a difference as we grow old.” Rev. Dr. Arthur W. Davenport, Senior Pastor, First Church of God, Far Rockaway, New York “Dr. Helen Mendes Love’s Reflections on the Upsides of Aging is so Spiritfilled and powerful. After reading it, I am renewed in the wonder of God’s blessings to me in my many years … I have also learned through Dr. Helen’s sharing that I will never be too old to grow and to enjoy new ways of telling this loving God ‘thank you’!” Paulette Meeks, former Daughter of Charity and author of The Best For Last: One Woman’s Unusual Tale of Life and Love “I enjoyed this book. Dr. Mendes Love’s handling of a variety of delicate subjects shows her deftness, aplomb, and confidence in her research. The chapter on sin is an exemplary treatise on a subject with sharp, jagged edges. I thank Dr. Mendes Love for speaking so freely of aging with great purpose and direction. Her scholarly, grandmotherly, sweet slap is a welcome wakeup call.” Brett Jones, Senior Pastor, Grace Church of Humble, Texas “This book will inspire the reader.

Book Description :

Aging well and continuing to be active are often regarded as THE goals in life, from individual, family, community, and population perspectives. This implies good health and physical fitness, good cognitive and positive emotional-motivational functioning, and social participation and engagement.Increasing life expectancy by means of biomedical advances is not on its own enough, however. Research shows that an individual’s psychological condition contributes to their quality of life and well-being in old age – and that behavioral and psychological interventions can also prevent illness, improve cognitive and physical fitness, and increase positive emotional functioning and social participation.This book shows how psychologists and psychological science as a whole can face the challenge of promoting optimal and active aging in a society that is growing ever older.

Book Description :

Find solace and wise counsel in these classics of spiritual gerontology! In these days, when so many people live beyond the Biblical threescore and ten, the spiritual questing and questioning of the aged demands a meaningful response from clergy, family members, and nursing home staff. The essays and research studies reprinted in Religion and Aging: An Anthology of the Poppele Papers investigate the role of faith in older people's lives. Many of these classic studies have been updated with new information. These essays were originally published in the Quarterly Papers on Religion and Aging. This renowned journal was issued from 1984 to 1994 by the Poppele Center for Health and Welfare Studies at the Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, Missouri. The issues of spiritual gerontology discussed in that journal are still powerfully relevant today. Because back issues of the journal are not widely available, the cream of its ten-year history is being reissued in permanent form. Religion and Aging offers unfailing wisdom and insight in a broad range of issues, including: training clergy to be more responsive to the needs of older people a historical perspective on the meaning of ”honoring thy father and mother” in first-century Judaism and Christianity the Psalms as a way to help nursing home residents deal with pain, loneliness, anger, and other difficult emotions original research into belief patterns of older Americans ways to give meaning to suffering suggested by the lives and works of Viktor Frankl, Martin Gray, and Rabbi Harold Kushner techniques of communicating with older people Religion and Aging is an invaluable resource to anyone who works with old people, whether in adult day-care programs, nursing homes, hospitals, or other senior citizens’groups. It will help chaplains, pastors, rabbis, and other clergy minister more effectively to the older members of their flock.

Book Description :

With the greying of the population in Western industrialized nations and the resultant problems, interest has increasingly been drawn to the construction of old age in historical periods and non-European societies. Asia has been the focus of considerable attention in this context due on the one hand to values such as filial piety or the prevalence of the seniority principle which many Asian cultures are credited with and which are thought to contribute to creating a cultural climate especially favourable to the elderly in this region of the world, and to recurrant reports of a tradition of abandonment of the elderly on the other, which also attest to a darker side of this issue. In 17 contributions that geographically span the area from India to China and Japan and historically cover periods from the earliest times of literate cultures to the present, the volume presents new findings on both the valuation of aging in the various intellectual and religious traditions of Asia, and the actual living conditions of the elderly in this region of the world in a cross-cultural perspective. The considerable historical and regional variation in the conceptions of old age and the - often surprising - determinants of the status of the elderly, as they are documented in this volume, should also contribute to enrich socio-gerontological discussion on a more general level.

Book Description :

The Handbook of Rural Aging goes beyond the perspective of a narrow range of health professions, disciplines, and community services that serve older adults in rural America to encompass the full range of perspectives and issues impacting the communities in which rural older adults live. Touching on such topics as work and voluntarism, technology, transportation, housing, the environment, social participation, and the delivery of health and community services, this reference work addresses the full breadth and scope of factors impacting the lives of rural elders with contributions from recognized scholars, administrators, and researchers. This Handbook buttresses a widespread movement to garner more attention for rural America in policy matters and decisions, while also elevating awareness of the critical circumstances facing rural elders and those who serve them. Merging demographic, economic, social, cultural, health, environmental, and political perspectives, it will be an essential reference source for library professionals, researchers, educators, students, program and community administrators, and practitioners with a combined interest in rural issues and aging.
