The Elderly in Social Policy

Towards a New Architecture of Gerontological Programmes

By Zbigniew Wozniak

The book puts forward an original proposal of a tri-dimensional structure for gerontology programs embedded in the aims and challenges of public policy towards old age and the elderly. The new architecture of those programs fills in the space between the political promises of the power elites and the social expectations and actual capacities of the state managing the needs of a society characterized by an aging demographic structure.
