Book Launch: Ageing, Health and Care by Christina Victor
Ageing, Health and Care

The ageing of the population has enormous implications for the provision of, and access to, health care. Christina Victor’s important new textbook provides:

  • a comprehensive overview of the experiences of older people
  • chapters on physical health, mental health, disability and lifestyle
  • a synthesis of current policy developments
  • the key debates on the future health of elders
  • an international, up-to-date perspective

Written by a leader in the field, the book covers key questions such as the fitness of future older people, the widening inequalities in their health and whether health in old age is related to habits and behaviour in earlier life.
