    The Authors' Purpose

    RobbynR.WackerUniversity of Northern Colorado
    KarenA.RobertoVirginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

    Students preparing for careers in gerontology and related areas need more than a description of existing community resources available for older adults. They need to understand how programs come to exist through federal legislation, who uses these resources, how they are delivered, and the challenges service providers face in meeting the needs of the aging baby boom cohort.

    We have developed a text that gives students a basic understanding of aging policy that created the “aging network” and of theories that can be used to explain help-seeking behavior. Each chapter provides the reader with an in-depth review of the programs and services provided by the “aging network” and the private sector, current scholarship in each topic area, and national and internet resources. Students will learn to identify the challenges inherent in providing services to older adults through case studies, learning activities, and best-practice models. Instructors can use these learning activities to stimulate critical thinking about service delivery and to explore what changes might be needed in the future. We hope that Community Resources for Older Adults is a text that both you and your students enjoy.

    As is typical of a project of this magnitude, many people have helped us along the way. Some did so willingly, others by default because they were in the right (or maybe wrong) place at a time that we needed help. We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge those persons who made undertaking the revisions for this edition a pleasant and manageable experience. First, we thank former and current graduate students at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) and at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) for all their help in collecting articles, tracking down references, and offering feedback. They include Sonja Rizzolo-Letzen from UNC and Nancy Brossoie, Erica Husser, Marya McPherson, and Pamela Murphy from Virginia Tech. Our secretarial staff Carlene Arthur and Frances Braafhart supported us in many ways. We appreciate the assistance of Sharon Larson, Region VIII Administration on Aging, for providing so much information on the Older Americans Act and its history. Thanks to Linda Piper, former director of the Weld County Area Agency on Aging, who was our co-author for the first two editions of the text. We are also indebted to the reviewers who offered their insights for the third edition:

    • Varsha Pandya, Ohio University
    • Denise Gammonley, University of Central Florida
    • Joaquin Anguera, San Diego State University
    • M. C. “Terry” Hokenstad, Case Western University
    • Shanta Sharma, Henderson State University
    • Patricia K. Cianciolo, Northern Michigan University
    • Sandy Cook-Fong, University of Nebraska, Kearney
    • Louise Murray, UNC Charlotte
    • Daphne Joslin, William Paterson University
    • Rochelle Elaine Rottenberg, St. Catherine/St. Thomas

    A big thank you goes to Kassie Graves and her staff at Sage, who aptly guided us through the revision of the second edition.
