It has been said that people don't want to read books about aging, but this one is different. In the tradition of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, this book offers readers a new way of looking at life and the world. Written by a doctor and specialist in aging, the book draws upon popular culture, history, science, and literature to create a highly readable, and persuasive case for a new kind of old age. The old way of seeing old age-as a time of decline and defeat - will be of little interest to boomers as they search for new ways to interpret their experience.

From the internationally acclaimed author of the groundbreaking and award-winning book Dementia Beyond Drugs comes another eye-opening exploration of how to improve the lives of people with dementia and those who care for them. In this revised edition-including updated facts, studies, and terminology-Dr. G. Allen Power demonstrates how to achieve sustainable success in dementia care by changing the caregiving lens to focus on well-being and the ways in which it can be enhanced in people living with dementia. Revealing how drug-based interventions as well as completely holistic approaches consistently fall short of addressing and meeting the needs of people with dementia, this book offers a proactive approach-one that challenges widely accepted dementia care practices and provides a compelling new framework to guide care decisions. Through in-depth examinations of seven domains of well-being, readers will discover how current care practices erode them, and the transformative approaches that can restore them, plus, how to apply a well-being approach to the everyday care of people living with dementia, a highly adaptable framework that can be adopted in any living environment, valuable insight on overcoming physical and operational barriers to well-being, a wealth of person-centered, strengths-based approaches to care, Filled with true stories that demonstrate the power of a well-being approach to greatly improve the lives of people with dementia as well as those who care for them, this book presents methods that promise a new and hopeful vision for achieving the best possible outcomes for every person living with cognitive changes. Readers will be challenged, motivated, and profoundly inspired. Book jacket.

In Being Mortal, bestselling author Atul Gawande tackles the hardest challenge of his profession: how medicine can not only improve life but also the process of its ending Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming birth, injury, and infectious disease from harrowing to manageable. But in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit. Nursing homes, preoccupied with safety, pin patients into railed beds and wheelchairs. Hospitals isolate the dying, checking for vital signs long after the goals of cure have become moot. Doctors, committed to extending life, continue to carry out devastating procedures that in the end extend suffering. Gawande, a practicing surgeon, addresses his profession's ultimate limitation, arguing that quality of life is the desired goal for patients and families. Gawande offers examples of freer, more socially fulfilling models for assisting the infirm and dependent elderly, and he explores the varieties of hospice care to demonstrate that a person's last weeks or months may be rich and dignified. Full of eye-opening research and riveting storytelling, Being Mortal asserts that medicine can comfort and enhance our experience even to the end, providing not only a good life but also a good end.
