Aging India by Phoebe S. Liebig
Book DescriptionExplore Indian policy and practice on aging from a variety of perspectives! This pathbreaking collection provides something that has been missing in the literature on aging in India, especially for non-Indian audiences: studies of various aspects of aging in India combined with analyses of current policies, policy trends and recommendations. You'll examine aging issues from a variety of perspectives--demographic foundations, social and family relations, economics, health and disability, current interventions, and advocacy and policy. An Aging India also provides you with up-to-date references, explanations of differences and similarities within India's diverse population, examples of programs in various settings including a geriatric hospital, a major NGO, and old-age homes, and an overview of the development of India's national policy on aging. Where appropriate, comparisons with U.S. policy approaches are noted. An Aging India: Perspectives, Prospects, and Policies examines: * the demography of aging in India * the current state of research on aging, and the pitfalls associated with that research * income, poverty, and the problems created by the lack of any widespread retirement income system in India * the health status of Indian elders and what their healthcare prospects are * the situation for the disabled elderly in India * elder abuse in the Indian context * social networks and grassroots organizations for seniors in India * the role of Indian geriatric hospitals and old-age homes The insights of the top researchers and practitioners who contributed to An Aging India: Perspectives, Prospects, and Policies will strike home with their counterparts around the world.
