  • Product Description
 
Over the past few decades, many populations in Asia are aging rapidly. With this demographic transformation, the support and care needs of the growing sector of older adults are pressing concerns that need to be addressed. The main source of support for older Asians has traditionally come from the family, but its sustainability is now in question. Socioeconomic changes that accompanied industrialization and modernization have increasingly led to a decrease in the availability of kin, as well as changes in resources, needs, values and preferences, both of older adults and caregivers. These in turn have profound implications for the living conditions and well-being of older adults. This book examines the factors that determine family living arrangements of older adults in Singapore, one of the fastest aging Asian countries. Based on analyses of nationally-representative cross-sectional and longitudinal data, the useful information is an invaluable resource and reference to academics, researchers, policymakers, social workers and other professionals in the fields of Gerontology and Family Studies, or to anyone interested in the family dynamics and well-being of older adults in Asia.
