Rezensionen
"This book is geared for older adults, geriatric healthcare professionals, and caregivers. The many contributors, as well as the authors, lend a level of expertise and creativity that is both authentic and useful. The book offers a variety of strategies for forging resilience in the aging process. ... this book presents a variety of options for looking at the aging life as positive growth rather than negative decline."
