This book is a UK adaptation of a Mosby US text, Ebersole & Hess: Toward Health and Aging: Human Needs and Nursing Response. It outlines the theoretical foundations which underpin caring for elderly people, before moving on toconsider the specific physiological and psychological problems that the elderly face and that those caring for them have to deal with. The latest research, theory and discussions of current practice are integrated throughout the book. The book acknowledges the diversity of older peoples' lives and the environment they inhabit in the UK. It also adopts a theoretical framework "Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs". This states that each individual has an innate hierarchy of needs that motivates all human behavior. These human needs have different priorities. When people achieve fulfillment of elementary needs, they strive to meet those on the next level until the highest order of needs is reached. Maslow's model is widely known and has been found particularly helpful in facilitating a holistic view of older people. * Adopts Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs model, helpful in facilitating a holistic view of older people. * Provides bridge between theoretical foundations of care and actual care provision. * Incorporates 115 illustrations which enhance the text and clarify concepts. * Provide Case Studies for real-life learning. * Includes Chapter Introductions and Chapter Summaries which point out main concepts and provide a useful revision tool. * Features Further Reading lists with the most current book and journal articles for additional information.

Why looking up matters A positive attitude is important, but until now we didn’t know how important. In Up, a practicing physician and NIH-funded researcher draws on her research and experience to show that our outlook on life— our unique patterns of thinking and feeling about ourselves, others, and the world—may be the key to how well and how fast we age. From wrinkles to cognitive decline, our outlook affects our health at every level. Using the framework of outlook GPS, Up illustrates how we can gauge our current attitude latitude and move to healthier ground. Tindle brings a fresh eye to attitudinal traits such as optimism, noting that it has many faces, including the face of her own struggling optimism. Using the 7 Steps of Attitudinal Change that she applies to her own patients, Tindle offers us a path toward healthy aging. Prescriptive and accessible, Up puts forward a paradigm shift in how we age and treat disease, giving even the most struggling optimists a chance for hope. It will appeal to readers of The Longevity Project by Howard S. Friedman and Leslie R. Martin as well as The Blue Zones by Dan Buettner.
