The books examine positive aspects of and successful adaptations to aging and focus on challenges and concerns for families, policy makers, and governments in caregiving and end-of-life issues.
These books include more than 30 chapters presenting an array of issues related to aging from the perspective of three nations, Australia, The U.S. and Israel. The books are a product of Prof. Carmel’s initiatives which started in 1999, with the invitation of scholars from UCLA and Victoria University, Melbourne to participate in a symposium on aging for the inauguration of the new MA Program in Gerontology. During Carmel’s sabbatical at Melbourne in 2005, she initiated the writing of both volumes.
