This how-to-guide provides nursing students with learning materials to assist them with developing their knowledge, skills, behaviours and attitudes that are aligned with older–person-centred care and which emphasise wellness outcomes and support healthy ageing.

The second edition has 29 chapters, organised into five parts. Chapters in Parts 1 and 2 introduce topics relevantto ageing, wellness, older adults, and the role of nurses in promoting wellness in older adults.

The three chapters in Part 5 help nurses provide holistic care for older adults during illness.
