''This book represents a much needed beginning step toward reconceptualizing the provision of aging services in the context of the family versus the current focus on the aged individual or the individual caregiver. . . . This book should be included in social work and gerontology courses in order to refocus the energies of service delivery from a study of older individuals and primary caregivers in isolation to a holistic view of the family as a system. The authors of this volume help us to evaluate the informal care system for persons as they age and to find ways to provide needed support.'' --Families in Society
