The monograph deals with issues of aging and the elderly in Israel with regards to legislation, legal arrangements and procedures on the one hand, and resource allocation for their implementation on the other hand.
Demographic and social developments among the elderly are also presented as background for the discussion of issues of work and pension. The Long-Term Care Law is also presented as a “case study” for social policy analysis. The implications of these subjects are presented as they relate to a view of aging in society as a “burden” or an “asset”.
