"This is a worthwhile publication that will be an excellent tool for students or practicing nurses. The book is a concise reference for individualizing care for geriatric clients."

-- Susan Spooner-Holland, MSN, RN, GNP (Northwestern State University)


The information is presented in a manner that will enable both the novice and experienced practitioner to use it. The rationale for the interventions is especially nice for the student to understand the science base for the interventions chosen.
