Toward Healthy Aging is a definitive, comprehensive source for health promotion and health maintenance in gerontologic nursing education. Noted for its use of Maslow's hierarchy of needs, this resource and its author team have been praised for the text's wellness-based and holistic approach; comprehensive coverage of common, as well as not-so-common, conditions in the older adult; accuracy of content; and pedagogic aids that promote student understanding. This popular resource provides a solid understanding of how to effectively provide holistic care, promote healthy lives, and address end-of-life issues and concerns. Instructor resources are available; please contact your Elsevier sales representative for details.
