Description

This updated edition presents a comprehensive overview of the research and theoretical explanations of elder abuse, as well as practical guidance for professionals concerned with the abuse and mistreatment of elderly people. Topics covered include: an evaluation of the implications of the NHS and Community Care Act; the application of care management systems in cases of elder abuse; practical proposals for inter-agency working; discussions of social policy, family and kinship networks, gender and the public response to the plight of elderly people. The book looks at abuse in both domestic and residential settings and inlcudes case examples of sexual, physical, psychological and material abuse, and forms of neglect. The use of existing assessment and screening tools are outlined and the lessons learned from child protection procedures are considered.
