노화는 자연스러운 삶의 과정이자 생애의 주요 전환기이다. 고령화 시대를 맞아 전 사회적 차원에서 그 중요성이 부각되고 있으나, 궁극적인 지향점은 높은 삶의 질이 보장되는 노년일 것이다. 노년기에 높은 삶의 질을 유지하기 위해서는 다양한 요소들이 전제되어야 한다. 예를 들어, 신체적 및 심리적 건강, 일정 수준 이상의 재정적 기반, 사회적 지지와 지원 등은 기본적인 삶의 질을 유지하는 데 기여한다. 또 자아존중감이나 정체성, 자아실현, 사회적 성취감 등을 충족시키고자 하는 욕구도 노년기까지 지속된다. 은퇴 이후 새로운 직업으로 전환하거나 직장 생활의 연장을 희망하는 노인이 증가하는 것도 이와 동일한 맥락이다. 요컨대, 높은 삶의 질을 유지하는 데에는 기본적인 요구뿐 아니라 심리사회적 만족이 뒷받침되어야 한다. 인지-의사소통 능력은 이를 실현하기 위해 필수적으로 전제되어야 할 요소이다. 이 책은 고령화의 현황과 그에 따른 다양한 요구에서 출발하였다. 무엇보다 언어병리학에서 노화로 인한 인지-의사소통의 문제를 다루는 데 있어 이론적 및 임상적 기초 자료를 제공하고자 하였다. 또 재활 관련 분야, 심리학, 노인학, 사회복지학 등 유관 학문의 전문가가 참고할 만한 교재로도 활용할 수 있다. 노화로 인한 인지-의사소통의 변화에 직면하거나 대비하고자 하는 노인과 가족, 그리고 노인의 인지와 언어에 관심이 있는 일반인도 참고할 수 있다.
