Eva Kahana and Jeffrey Kahana’s new book available March 2017

Posted on October 7, 2016

What is the lived experience of previously healthy older adults as they face disability in late life, and how is disability assimilated in their identity? How do prevailing practices facilitate—or limit—options for elders living with new disabilities? To address these questions, Jeffrey Kahana and Eva Kahana uniquely synthesize disability and gerontological perspectives to explore both the unfolding challenges of aging and the practices and policies that can enhance the lives of older adults in their forthcoming publication Disability and Aging: Learning from Both to Empower the Lives of Older Adults available from Lynne Rienner Publishers April 2017.
