Summary "In this informative guide, editors Sara Quails and Steven Zarit have brought together a notable team of international contributors to produce a clear structure that offers clinicians a framework for engaging families effectively in the important, but frequently stressful and complicated, role of caring for older family members. Aging Families and Caregiving provides clinicians with a solid foundation to help families manage age and disability in a manner consistent with their values, maximize positive outcomes for the care receiver, and reduce the emotional and physical costs on the caregiver."--BOOK JACKET
