A comprehensive text addressing this issue is welcome and this book addresses service provision for older people with disabilities from a UK, USA and Australian perspective. The book would serve as a useful reference book for Health and Social Service personnel, particularly students, from a variety of disciplines working with older adults, in the learning disability field or with older people who have lifelong physical disabilities. A particular strength is the inclusion of case vignettes that describe individual older clients with lifelong disabilities; interesting questions are posed for discussion which relate to the subject matter in each of the five sections. The vignettes are interesting and enjoyable to read and would be useful for group work/teaching purposes.' - International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry'This book is most welcome with an extensive review of the research and service development in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia with illustrative vignettes and relevant questions following the first four parts of the book.
