From Library Journal:

Lederman, an occupational therapist working in a rehabilitation center, has compiled a fairly comprehensive directory of resources and services for the mature adult (i.e., those over 50). Her book is divided into four main headings: independent living, health, safety, and security and emotional well-being. Under "independent living," you can find such subjects as cleaning, communication, recreation, gardening, and dressing. The subjects under "healthier life" range from Alzheimer's disease to vision. The "happier life" section covers connecting with grandchildren, volunteerism, widowhood support, divorce, computer utilization, and a variety of hobbies. The products listed throughout the book range from free literature to a $5000 walk-in tub, though many of the items are in the $5 to $200 range. Detailed descriptions accompany these listings, and names and addresses are provided for sources and services. A good reference guide for primary care physicians, care managers, librarians, adult caregivers, and other professionals serving the aging, as well as the older adult.

From Booklist:

Occupational therapist Lederman has compiled a helpful compendium of resources for older Americans (or younger readers with special needs). Her section on maintaining independence discusses, among other subjects, accessible housing, implements for cooking, cleaning, and gardening, and recreation options. Lederman's health topics run alphabetically from Alzheimer's disease and arthritis to urinary incontinence and vision problems, and suggest sources for more details on nutrition and exercise and support groups for common diseases and conditions. The book's third section takes on personal and household safety and financial and emotional security, while a final section addresses ways--from bird-watching to computer bulletin boards--older Americans can overcome isolation and remain actively involved with families, friends, and communities. From mental alertness to foot health, travel tips to household hints, Making Life More Livable affords a wealth of information (including estimated costs and suppliers' addresses and phone numbers); most readers of whatever age will find a few tidbits they can use. Mary Carroll
