Aging and Chronic Disorders brings the most up-to-date answers into clear, readable focus. Focusing on the most prevalent conditions affecting older adults (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, low back pain, and fibromyalgia), Morewitz and Goldstein analyze disabilities and risk factors, stressors and coping strategies, treatment and rehabilitation methods, and patient education and self-management. Separate chapters are devoted to cognitive changes, psychological problems, and trends in health care utilization among seniors, and all chapters are amplified by current research findings and instructive case studies. As in their recent work.
