Elders living alone : frailty and the perception of choice by Robert L Rubinstein( Book )

What is it like to be old, have many health problems, and live alone? Never before have there been so many elders, and never before have so many of them been living alone and pursuing their lives independently. This book enters the lives of frail elders who live alone and vividly conveys their continuing struggle to maintain their independence. Many look to their homes as the important facilitating element for that independence. The authors' approach combines an eye and an ear for the telling individual detail, in all of its human complexity, with broader societal and communal concerns. In interviewing their subjects, Rubinstein and his colleagues examine how these elders view the choices they have, understand their independence, and raise possibilities and alternatives. Using a framework that will interest both anthropologists and case workers, the authors explore the cultural background of concepts such as independence and choice, and how they are symbolically located in the home. In this volume, the authors register their subjects' urban isolation, fraught with needs of the most basic kind, imperiled by intermittent and uncertain human contact, erratic provision, and occasionally engulfing solitude. These voices, seldom heard and often heard with reluctance, are caught and interpreted in these pages

Membership is drawn from both academic and applied sectors and includes the social and biological sciences, medicine, urban planning, policy studies, social work and the development, administration and provision of services for the aged.
