Summary
Geriatric Palliative Care covers a broad spectrum of issues characterizing care near the end of life for older adults. Beginning with the social and cultural context of old age and frailty, this volume details with specific aspects of palliative care relevant to particular disorders (e.g. cancer, strokes, dementia) as well as individual symptoms (e.g. pain, fatigue, anxiety.). Communication between care-givers and patients, in a variety of settings, is also discussed. The theme of this book is that palliative care is the best approach to the care of chronically ill and frail elderly because of its focus on quality of life, support for functional independence, and the centrality of the patient's values and experiences in determining the goals of medical care. Geriatric Palliative Care provides a comprehensive medical reference for all clinicians who care for older adults
