Ending Elder Abuse: A Family Guide (Paperback)

Ending Elder Abuse: A Family Guide By Diane S. Sandell, Lois Hudson Cover Image


Diane Sandell's 91-year-old mother was severely beaten in a nursing home in Orange County, California. She died six weeks later. The home was never cited for abuse, nor was anyone ever prosecuted. "Ending Elder Abuse" confronts the inexcusable pervasiveness of abuse--verbal, physical, mental, sexual, and financial--of America's elder generation. Its practical, creative approach provides hope and encouragement to the elderly and their families while offering solutions to professional caregivers and proposing a realistic strategy for legislators to help eliminate this devastating problem.
