Later life families

American families are growing old. That is, as demographers, gerontologists, and sociologists have discovered, more families currently reach the later stages of the family life cycle--specifically, beyond the child-rearing and the child-launching phase--than ever before. Later Life Families is an in-depth look at this relatively recent social phenomenon. After methodically reviewing the research from developmental psychology, social work, gerontology, and many other disciplines, Timothy Brubaker argues that the later life family is "alive and well" in the United States today and that these families, with their histories of long-term interaction and coping, offer an intriguing look at evolvin...

Aging, health, and family

Long term care of the elderly has become an important issue in recent years. Researchers and policy-makers are urgently seeking ways of improving social service systems in response to a dramatic increase in the number of older people as a percentage of the total population.

Family Ties and Aging

This advanced textbook covers issues of family ties and aging broadly, the goal being to provide an integrated and thorough representation of what we know from the current research. Whereas books on families and aging have traditionally focused on ties to a spouse and to children and grandchildren, Family Ties & Aging is more extensive and more reflective of contemporary society. The text includes groups and relationships that typically receive short shrift, exploring such neglected populations as single, divorced, and childless older people and their family relationships, as well as sibling relationships among the elderly, live-in partnerships not formalized by marriage, and the kinds of family ties forged by gay and lesbian persons over the life course. The book weaves the vast range of information we now have about the many facets of family relationships and aging into a critical, comprehensive, and integrated whole.
