As the elderly population increases worldwide, so disease prevalence in old age has exploded. It has become a vitally important issue in health and social policy, both in the developed and developing world. This work deals with the ways in which needs assessment, service evaluation, and health and social policy may improve the care of elderly people in all societies. It discusses a wide number of topics related to ageing and health care such as: community care; preventive medicine; risk factors; quality of life; stroke; Alzheimer's disease; osteoporosis; arthritis.
