About this book

This book sheds new light on health issues that concern both aging patients and their caregivers, and provides practical and in-depth insights. The respective chapters address various topics including locomotive organ disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease and more. Japan is currently experiencing a massive growth in its elderly population, and at a speed unmatched elsewhere in the world. As such, this edited volume offers a valuable guide for countries that are likely to experience an increase in their elderly population, especially with regard to the epidemiological findings and cohort studies in Japan that it presents.  

Health Issues and Care System for the Elderly offers a valuable resource for both new and established researchers, doctors, healthcare workers, and students who are seeking information on health problems involving the elderly in the field of public health and gerontology. 

Reviews

“This book discusses effects of aging, health risks, health promotion, and diseases affecting the aging population’s specific to Japan. It has appropriate graphs illustrating the trends, associated disease processes, and specific disease trends in elderly. … This book could be used in a research setting. Its lack of discussion of global aging as a whole may limit the audience further. The discussion of genetics, while interesting, may tend to be too in depth for some student populations.” (Melody L.W. Schrock, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 15, 2019)
