Caregiving--leisure and Aging
Create programs that make good use of the leisure time of the elderly, and of those who care for them!
Caregiving is a vital issue in today's rapidly aging society. Each year, a greater number of elderly people find themselves in need of care, and at the same time, more elderly adults than ever are finding themselves in the caregiving role.
Caregiving--Leisure and Aging blends the work of six experts in the field, exploring implications for future practice and research, examining caregivers and care receivers and their need for appropriate leisure and recreation activities, and sharing innovative recreation programs to help caregivers and those in their care enrich the quality of their lives.
