"Making Life More Livable" is a comprehensive guide to the products and information that can help older persons maintain their independence and enhance the quality of their lives.From Library Journal:
Lederman, an occupational therapist working in a rehabilitation center, has compiled a fairly comprehensive directory of resources and services for the mature adult (i.e., those over 50). Her book is divided into four main headings: independent living, health, safety, and security and emotional well-being. Under "independent living," you can find such subjects as cleaning, communication, recreation, gardening, and dressing. The subjects under "healthier life" range from Alzheimer's disease to vision. The "happier life" section covers connecting with grandchildren, volunteerism, widowhood support, divorce, computer utilization, and a variety of hobbies. The products listed throughout the book range from free literature to a $5000 walk-in tub, though many of the items are in the $5 to $200 range. Detailed descriptions accompany these listings, and names and addresses are provided for sources and services. A good reference guide for primary care physicians, care managers, librarians, adult caregivers, and other professionals serving the aging, as well as the older adult.
