Elder abuse has been increasing recognised over the past ten years in many countries and progress in working with the problem has been rapid. This volume provides a much-needed international overview of the topic Opening with an examination of what elder abuse is, Amanda Phelan sets it in a theoretical context and looks at assessment, approaches and management of the issue in long term and community care. The book then presents a range of country studies, which provide an overview of the context of elder abuse in the country and a discussion of related policy, legislation, research and practice.
