Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 080392237X, Hardcover)

As people age, they become less mobile, and social networking becomes more difficult to maintain. This book examines the support networks of the elderly and reaches the conclusion that 'older people do not engage in relationships on the basis of a one-sided dependency; rather relationships tend to be reciprocal or interdependent'. The authors offer a positive and realistic approach to the relationship between the elderly and society.
