Author: Terry Lynch
This book tackles head on the powerful myths and discriminatory attitudes that underlie one of the unspoken moral disasters of contemporary life: that so many older people die, before their time, cut off from their family and their homes, unhappy and alone.
Terry Lynch provides creative and hopeful strategies for empowering older people and those who care about them to overcome these destructive forces, and it is written with wisdom and humanity.
