Welcome to the Companion Site!
This site is intended to enhance your use of Community Resources for Older Adults, Fifth Edition, by Robbyn R. Wacker and Karen A. Roberto. Please note that all the materials on this site are especially geared toward maximizing your understanding of the material.
How have programs for older adults evolved? Who uses these resources? How are they delivered? And what challenges do service providers face in meeting the needs of the aging baby-boom generation? Community Resources for Older Adults: Programs and Services in an Era of Change, Fifth Edition, answers these and other critical questions and provides a theoretical framework for understanding the forces that shape older adults' likelihood to seek assistance. To give students the foundational knowledge they need to meet the needs of their older clients, the authors provide in-depth reviews of the current body of empirical literature in each program area and discuss the challenges programs and services will face in the future.
