Synopsis

In the context of global ageing societies, there are few challenges to the underlying assumption that policies should promote functional health and independence in older people and contain the costs of care. This important book offers such a challenge. It provides a critical analysis of the limitations of contemporary policies and calls for a fuller understanding of the relationship between health and care throughout the life-course. Located within the tradition of the feminist ethic of care, the book provides a fresh insight into global policy debates and the impact that these have on people's experiences of ageing. Including international evidence on health inequalities, health promotion and health care, this book will be of interest to a range of social scientists, particularly specialists in gerontology and social policy.

Liz Lloyd is a Senior Lecturer in Social Gerontology at the University of Bristol, School for Policy Studies. Her research is on ageing and the life course with a particular focus on health and the ethics of care. She has researched and published on the end-of-life in old age and she has been instrumental in developing the ethics of care perspective within gerontology.
