The ageing of the population has enormous implications for the provision of, and access to, health care. Christina Victor's important textbook provides comprehensive overview of the experiences of older people, chapters on physical health, mental health, disability and lifestyle, a thesis of current policy developments, the key debates on the future health of elders and 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.

Review:

Christina Victor's authoritative text on ageing and health digs deep into the meaning and challenges of old age. It is essential reading for practitioners as well as gerontological specialists. Professor Fiona Ross, Dean, Faculty of Health & Social Care Sciences, Kingston University and St George's, University of London

Professor Victor's book is highly readable and informative about the different models of health. It contains a wealth of fascinating material, from the types of health-related data collected in early censuses to the emergence of anti-ageing medicine. She also uses examples from research to illustrate and enliven key points throughout. There are useful exercises for postgraduate students, as well as key websites. This is an important contribution to the literature in gerontology. Ann Bowling, Department of Primary Care and Population Health, University College London Medical School

This is an informative, accessible and essential reader and study guide for anyone with an interest in ageing: gerontologists, health and social care professionals, managers, policy makers, academics and researchers. Brenda Roe, Professor of Health Research, Edge Hill University

Synopsis:

The ageing of the population has enormous policy implications for the provision of, and access to, health care. People aged 65+ are the major consumers of the health care system accounting for about half of all NHS resources. Furthermore those aged 85+ represent 1 percent of the population but consume 10 percent of all health-care resources. Christina Victor's important new textbook provides: a comprehensive overview of the health status and experiences of older people; chapters on physical health, mental health, disability, and lifestyle; a synthesis of current policy developments relating to health and social care for older people; an examination of the key debates concerning the health of future cohorts of elders; and, an international, up-to-date perspective.Written by a leader in the field, the book covers key questions such as the fitness of older people in the future, the widening inequalities in the health of older people and the extent to which health in old age reflects habits and behaviour in earlier life.
