In this book, Payne illustrates society's inclination to discount and disregard older people and encourages readers to combat their personal biases to improve service care for older adults.

Editorial Reviews

"The ideas presented in this book are certain to expand social workers' scope of practice with older adults locally, nationally, and internationally. The author's citizenship social work perspective will make a valuable contribution as a text in case management, gerontology, policy, directpractice, and human behavior and the social environment courses." --Mercedes Bern-Klug, The Gerontologist, Vol. 53, No. 3
