"[This book] has been honed into an elegant compendium. This outstanding work should be widely read ñ it is perhaps the best example of an integrative approach to gerontology." Score: 94, 4 stars ñ Doody's "Phyisical Change & Aging has been a well-respected resource for caregivers ever since it was published in 1978. This updated version carries on the tradition of providing valuable information on the aging process and age-related health issues." ñ Former First Lady Mrs. Rosalynn Carter This sixth edition of a classic multidisciplinary text for students of gerontology continues to offer practical, reader-friendly information about the physical changes and common pathologies associated with the aging process. It places special emphasis on the psychological and social implications of these changes in the lives of older adults. The book is distinguished by its thorough focus on anatomy and physiology and common health problems pertaining to each body system. It emphasizes the positive aspects of aging and demonstrates how the elderly population can gain greater personal control, through lifestyle changes and preventive health strategies, toward the goal of optimal aging. This sixth edition has been thoroughly updated to present new research findings that differentiate "normal" aging from actual pathology and includes substantially updated information on diagnosis and treatment. It incorporates new data from healthy older adults demonstrating that the aging process is not necessarily as devastating as earlier research had indicated. The book provides new data and guidelines on risk factors, nutrition, preventive measures, interventions, and commonly prescribed medications, and includes expanded treatment of complementary and alternative therapies. Also included is an updated discussion of grief, ethical issues, and funeral options. The book reinforces information with practical applications of aging data. Written for students of gerontology, social work, human services, nursing, medicine, occupational and physical therapy, counseling, and elder law, it presents information that is clearly understandable for those without an extensive background in biology or medicine. Additionally, the book is a useful practitioner's guide and an easily understandable book for family caregivers. THIS SIXTH EDITION INCLUDES NEW INFORMATION ON: Diagnosis and treatment Behaviors and interventions that promote more control over an individual's aging process Genetic/DNA theories Dementia and Parkinson's disease Immunotherapy Lifelong health disparities Animal-assisted therapy Prayer and meditation Pharmacogenetics Geragogy (self-directed learning) Caregiver health as a public health issue Natural funerals (biodegradable caskets, burial urns, dying at home)

Congratulations.î -- Lynne Ann DeSpelder CoAuthor, The Last Dance: Encountering Death and Dying, 8th edition "This is no ordinary academic textbook. It is nothing short of a masterpiece in which Papadatou provides the field of death, dying and bereavement with invaluable and constructive insights into the world of caring for the dying and bereaved."--Grief Matters "This is a fascinating book, applying important theoretical modelsÖin order to describe and speculate about how professionals manage to work in an environment where suffering and grief are constantly present. This is an important and substantial addition to the mostly self-help literature about self-care for caregivers."--Doody's Medical Reviews In the Face of Death explores the experiences of health care professionals who care for the seriously ill, the dying, and the bereaved. In this book, Danai Papadatou offers a practical approach to caregiving, as well as a breadth and depth of insight into both the patient's and the caregiver's responses to death.

Ein berührender Bericht von der Schwelle zwischen Leben und Tod Manchmal muss man erst sterben, um voll und ganz leben zu können. Dieses Buch führt uns auf die spannendste Reise, die man sich vorstellen kann. Anita Moorjani war an Krebs erkrankt und lag im Sterben. Doch als sie das Bewusstsein verlor, fand sie sich plötzlich in einem von Licht und Ekstase erfüllten Raum wieder. Tiefgreifende Erkenntnisse über unsere göttliche Natur, unsere Aufgabe auf der Erde und den Sinn ihrer Krankheit strömten auf sie ein. Obwohl sie gerne in diesem jenseitigen Raum geblieben wäre, entschloss sie sich, zurückzukehren, denn sie erkannte: »Der Himmel ist kein Ort, sondern ein Zustand.« Anita Moorjani kehrte ins Leben zurück, und in der Folge heilte ihr Krebs zur Überraschung aller Mediziner vollständig ab. Diese Erfahrung hat ihr Leben verändert. Sie weiß jetzt: Es gibt keinen Grund für Traurigkeit und Angst. Wir sind nicht nur mit allen anderen Lebewesen und mit Gott verbunden – in einer tieferen Schicht sind wir Gott. Ein zutiefst bewegender Erfahrungsbericht und zugleich ein Ratgeber, der unser aller Anschauung über das Leben und den Tod verändern kann.
