"This book present a compelling case for a shift in thinking about the stages of the Third Age. By building on the "voices" of the adults and caregivers who are living in this age of "supported independence," the authors effectively challenge our current notion of the aging process and the people who are living this experience. Real-world stories and experiences capture the day-to-day challenges for care recipients, caregivers, and extended family. The Age of Supported Independence: Voices of In-Home Care is vitally important as our population worldwide is aging in greater numbers than ever before. It is a highly recommended reading for social workers in the practice, program development, and policy-making arenas."International Journal of Social Welfare, volume 21 (2012), p.226
