Explore new frontiers in Alzheimer's support systems! When Congress authorized the Alzheimer's Disease Demonstration Grants to States program in 1990, no one knew how effective the program would prove to be. A New Look at Community-Based Respite Programs provides you with results of the first major evaluation of ADDGS programs. Across the country, groups were able to develop specialized programs that reached traditionally underserved clients. A byproduct of many of the ADDGS programs was that they helped strengthen ties between communities and agencies, improving social services for both caregivers and people with Alzheimer's. A New Look at Community-Based Respite Programs examines: the profile of the average respite care user different challenges faced by urban and rural clientele how culture and ethnicity influence health care decisions ways to involve communities in respite care how understanding patterns of use makes for better program design and implementation A New Look at Community-Based Respite Programs provides you with detailed analyses of a variety of successful support service plans, including mobile day care, Latino-specific outreach, traveling dementia evaluation teams, and programs designed for people who live alone. You'll also read about the importance of complementing family caregivers instead of substituting for them. Throughout, helpful tables make the results of ADDGS programs clear. It is estimated that Alzheimer's will affect up to 14 million Americans by the year 2050. A New Look at Community-Based Respite Programs contains vital knowledge that you can act on now to help lay the foundations for a better future.

Of growing importance in the socioeconomic sphere is the aging of the American work force. This phenomena already has a significant impact on the nation's economy. Increasingly, it will affect the productivity of both public and private sectors and have an effect on the skill and manpower needs of newly emerging and old-line industries. It is a concern for those in human relations and collective bargaining, for institutions that provide and finance medical care, and for pension systems. Even the question of whether the public or the private sector is responsible to find solutions generates strong differences of opinion. The papers collected in this volume reflect a wide diversity of viewpoints on these and related concerns. Specific issues addressed include national health insurance, the portability of pensions, the rising cost of providing benefits, the nature and cost of worker re-education, the productivity of older employees, alternative work arrangements for "senior citizens," and the role of the SocialSecurity system in national policy intervention.Six sections encompass the twenty-eight essays: the aging of the work force as the "baby boomers" grow older, the "middle-aging" of the labor market, health issues and costs, the effects of the aging worker on productivity, their impact on economic distribution, and future challenges.The contributors do not speak with a single voice; the papers present a divergence of viewpoints and recommendations. All, however, agree that the issue of the aging of the work force must be recognized and dealt with now. In The Aging of the American WorkForce, policymakers, educators, workers, and employers will find a framework for understanding and addressing this new phenomenon in our society.
