Care of the Aged - new book

ISBN: 9781617374449

The growing population of elderly and infirm has given rise to serious questions about their proper care and treatment. What responsibility does society have to its aging citizens? What duties if any do grown children owe their parents? What should be done with severely demented patients? When is a person "elderly?" In Care of the Aged, an interdisciplinary panel of diverse thinkers and practicing ethicists grapples with these and other pressing moral problems associated with the treatment and care of the elderly-and offers proposals for solving them. Writing in an easily understandable style, the authors debate the propriety of Western society's current mechanisms for dealing with elderly citizens and consider the problems that arise for medical personnel and family members who provide such care. Among the issues discussed are disrespecting our elders, ethical dilemmas in community-based care, duties to aging parents, a feminist ethics of care, and the ethics of pain management in older Americans.Informative and readily accessible, Care of the Aged not only illuminates for the educated reader many of the key ethical issues arising in the care and treatment of the elderly, but also offers recommendations with real moral import.

Care of the Aged - Paperback

ISBN: 9781617374449

Paperback, [PU: Humana Press Inc.], In virtually all the developed countries of the Western world, people are living longer and reproducing less. At the same time, costs for the care of the elderly and infirm continue to rise dramatically. Given these facts, it should come as no surprise that we are experi- encing an ever-increasing concern with questions relating to the proper care and treatment of the aged. What responsibilities do soci- eties have to their aging citizens? What duties, if any, do grown chil- dren owe their parents? What markers should we use to determine one's status as "elderly"? Does treatment of pain in aged patients present special medical and/or moral problems? How can the com- peting claims of autonomy and optimal medical care be reconciled for elderly persons who require assisted living? When, if ever, should severely demented patients be included in nontherapeutic clinical tri- als? These questions, and others of similar interest to those con- cerned with the proper treatment of the aged, are discussed in depth in the articles included in this text. The essays in this volume of Biomedical Ethics Reviews fall loosely into two broad categories. The first four articles-those con- tributed by Sheila M. Neysmith, Allyson Robichaud, Jennifer Jackson, and Susan McCarthy-raise general questions concerning the propri- ety of Western society'S current mechanisms for dealing with and treat- ing elderly citizens. The remaining four articles-those by Simon Woods and Max Elstein, Marshall B., Bio-ethics
