Handbook on Ethical Issues in Aging

Synopsis

Because long-term aging has created a "new generation" of older adults, some new issues are emerging which need to be addressed from an ethical perspective--elder abuse, physician assisted suicide, dementia, intergenerational equity, guardianship, and living wills. Johnson offers both a resource on ethics and aging with a historical perspective and policy recommendations for the future with an ethical emphasis.
