The worldwide population is aging and countries are facing ongoing challenges in caring for their elderly population. In Aging with Dignity: Innovation and Challenge in Sweden–The Voice of Care Professionals, ACCESS Health’s Sophia Widén and William A. Haseltine explore best practices in long-term care through the lens of the Swedish healthcare system. Sweden has some of the best long term care initiatives in the world with passionate leaders eager to improve quality of care for the aging in their own organizations and beyond.
Aging with Dignity is based on a series of interviews ACCESS Health conducted with more than thirty long term care professionals in Sweden. The book summarizes the interviews and provides a broader analysis of the innovative solutions available for an aging generation.
In Aging with Dignity we show how any country can adapt and adopt many of Sweden’s extraordinary long term care practices to fit local needs.
