This much-needed book provides honest, clear, and helpful medical information for older adults and their caregivers, written in an easily understandable language. There are many myths and much misinformation about aging. At the same time, there are few trustworthy books on the subject. Aging, But Never Old: The Realities, Myths, and Misrepresentations of the Anti-Aging Movement was written to address those myths and fill that gap. Written by an eminent geriatric specialist, this book will educate readers about the specialty of geriatric medicine, helping them understand what true geriatric care is and what it can do for older adults. The book opens with a comparison of scientifically sound geriatric medicine as compared to its arch rival, the "anti-aging business." It goes on to discuss the most important medical issues an older adult will face, explaining them in layman's terms and through the use of case examples. Full of sage advice, humor, and easy-to-remember suggestions pertaining to each issue discussed, this upbeat volume will help older adults and their children and caregivers better navigate the increasingly complex medical options older adults now face. Contributions from 20 distinguished physicians from Harvard Medical School and quotes and other material from more than 100 original papers to ensure scientific accuracy and up-to-date context Case examples that help explain material and bring the advice to life
