With contributions from those on the forefront of these issues, Aging and Disability will provide a basis for understanding why our aging and disability networks have so long been separated and what we can do to bridge that gap.

There is a growing population at the intersection of aging and disability who increasingly rely on old community service systems for care--systems that currently cannot handle the increase in demand and the crossing of the care boundaries that have been set up between the aging and those with disability.

In response to this need, Michelle Putnam has edited this volume to reflect the current research, facilitate collaboration across service networks, and encourage movement toward more effective service policies. Professional stakeholders evaluate the bridges and barriers to crossing network lines, and a chapter on current websites, agencies, and coalitions provides the much needed tools to bring collaboration into practice.
