This edition is designed for one of America's largest growing populations, with resources to help aging Americans lead happy and productive lives. It includes nearly 10,000 listings, two glossaries, three indexes, and is a repeat winner of the National Mature Media Award for being recognized as "the best in advertising, marketing, and educational materials for older adults."

Detailed Listings

The Older Americans Information Resource includes detailed listings including name, address, phone, fax, websites, key personnel, and brief descriptions divided into 12 major chapters, including; 

  • Organizations
  • Awards
  • Continuing Education
  • Disability Aids

  • Print Resources

The chapter on Health Conditions includes specific conditions including Aids, Depression, Hypertension, Stroke, and Visual Impairment. Each of these sections includes associations, publications, research centers, websites, and more.

Valuable Glossaries

Additionally, this resource includes two extremely helpful glossaries. The first, Glossary of Health and Medical Terms, with terms that define language found throughout this and other publications, as well as terms used by professionals in the field. The second, Glossary of Legal Terms, includes in-depth situations older Americans may commonly find themselves in.

Helpful Indexes

Three indexes offer additional ways to access this resource's content. The Entry Index is an alphabetical list of all entries available in the text. The Geographical Index organizes appropriate listings by more than 100 categories, from Elder Abuse to Wills.

Whether in print, online, or both, the Older Americans Information resource, is the perfect addition to any reference collection that serves this age demographic, including reference departments of public libraries and senior centers.
