dc.description.abstract The successful solutions to many of the problems facing the older adult population center around the ability of the aged to use, evaluate, and understand the detailed and technical information available to them from a variety of areas. Currently, many disciplines are involved in investigating problems of older adults relative to neighborhoods, consumer product liability, housing needs, employment, assessment and diagnosis of potential client problems, discrimination and race relations, health, cultural effects, and public matters of assistance. Relative to these efforts, scientific and technical data are available concerning the establishment of formal and informal networks to effectively address these concerns. An associated problem confronting older adults is the confusion experienced when they attempt to assimilate the relevant scientific information available. The focus of this paper is the process for the successful use of this information by seniors and coping strategies for combating data shock. en_US
