There is a growing population at the intersection of aging and disability who increasingly rely on old community service systems for care--systems that currently cannot handle the increase in demand and the crossing of the care boundaries that have been set up between the aging and those with disability.

In response to this need, Michelle Putnam has edited this volume to reflect the current research, facilitate collaboration across service networks, and encourage movement toward more effective service policies. Professional stakeholders evaluate the bridges and barriers to crossing network lines, and a chapter on current websites, agencies, and coalitions provides the much needed tools to bring collaboration into practice.

With contributions from those on the forefront of these issues, Aging and Disability will provide a basis for understanding why our aging and disability networks have so long been separated and what we can do to bridge that gap.

About the Author:


Michelle Putnam, Ph.D., is an assistant professor with the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. In April 2002, she was named a Hartford Geriatric Social Work Faculty Scholar, and received funding for the study on coalition building across aging, developmenteal disability, and physical disability service networks. Her scholarship includes theoretical and empirical evaluation of the intersections of aging and disability with a particular focus on differences between aging with and aging into disability. Putnam's research in this area includes examining issues of independent living and long-term care service use, consumer direction of services, asset development, and disability identity.

Review:

"This book will be a rich resource to those trying to constructively link disability and aging political agendas. It brings together a good mix of authors familiar with independent living, developmental disabilities, or aging. Several chapters report on collaborations between aging and disability networks and provide next steps for building on this experience. Also of interest are chapters specifically addressing how to engage consumer stakeholders and those that contrast the dominant approaches of aging and disability advocates to social change."

--Nancy N. Eustis, PhD, Professor, Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota
