From the Publisher

This book conveys the good news: there is considerable evidence that practitioners themselves can design more effective systems of care for older people, often at lower costs. The researchers here point the way ahead: "evidence-based" interventions; proactive population-based care programs; patient-centered delivery models--all developed under rigorous research controls and under the mandates of managed care. The results reported here are proof that the convergence of wellness movements, patient participation, and managed care administration can be harnessed for improved and often more cost-effective gerontologic care.

Other connections may be more surprising. A full night’s sleep has been

If Not Obamacare, Then What?

GETTYSBURG, Pa.—As her hair was styled at the Grace Kelly hair salon in this quaint tourist town, a middle-aged mother told me that she wants Obamacare gone, even though her 24-year-old son is still on her plan, thanks to an Obamacare provision that allows young adults to stay on their parents’ health insurance until the age of 26. (The woman asked that we not use her name because she’s worried about her privacy.) In its place, she’d like to see a new law in which people pay for their insurance as a percentage of their income, so that everyone has some “skin in the game.” When I asked her if t

A Chronicle of Chronic Underemployment

RIGHT BEFORE THE 2008 recession, I was working at an asset-management company in Kansas City. The economy wasn’t looking good, but I wasn’t actually laid off: I had to go to Tulsa and care for my stepfather, who had stage-four lymphoma. It was very challenging to find a job around that time, so since then I’ve been working at contract positions. Working as a temp is hard: You’ve got to start over each time. I’m single, never been married, so I have to support myself. Of course, I want to work, but it’s very hard when you don’t have a cushion. I don’t have a zero bank balance; I’m always overdr
