Aging with Dignity

Innovation and Challenge in Sweden – the Voice of Care Professionals

Sofia Widén, William A. Haseltine

Aging with Dignity is the first book focused on the opportunities of an aging society, rather than the challenges presented by demographic change. It describes how healthcare systems and societies overall need to adapt to the individuals they serve and become more inclusive.

The authors of Aging with Dignity have given us not only a comprehensive account of cutting edge elder care practices but also important input on how further improvements can be made.

Lars Gatenbeck, MD, Board Member, Silviahemmet Foundation

Demographic change is a defining issue of our time. The worldwide population is aging and countries are facing ongoing challenges in caring for their elderly. Will countries be able to overcome these challenges?

Aging with Dignity provides a robust account of best practices in long-term care. Based on a series of interviews conducted by ACCESS Health International with elder care professionals in Sweden, the book offers innovative solutions to the universal challenge of aging.
