Growing Old in Egypt

The Supply and Demand of Care for Older Persons

Thomas Boggatz

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

Based on eight years of research, this book investigates the cultural shifts necessitated by these developments. It introduces the reader to the nursing homes and home care services that are currently available in Egypt's bigger cities. It describes how younger persons face the challenges of the new profession of care-giving and how recipients adapt in different ways to the situation of receiving care by non-family members.
