Book Description

Winner of an "AJN" Book of the Year Award! Named an Outstanding Academic Title for 2007 by "Choice!" Well organized, extensively referenced, and illustrated with figures/tables, this work represents a unique, multipurpose, interdisciplinary approach to elder care...Highly recommended. "--CHOICE" Based on the concept that vulnerability in the older populace encompasses those who are at increased risk for physical and psychosocial health problems, this book takes a closer look at vulnerability and how it affects five specific populations within the elderly: Those incarcerated in prisons The homeless Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people Those who are HIV positive or living with AIDS The frail Both physical and psychosocial health care issues and needs are addressed as well as interventions and resources that can be implemented to care for these very specific populations and their requirements for successful physical and mental health care. The unique challenges of hospice care in prisons; the lack of services that cater to homeless older people; and the overall attitude towards helping elderly gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender people are some of the increasingly important issues covered. Unique features include: The latest research and theoretical approaches are summarized to give health professionals a concise picture of health care needs of these older adults Themes of interdisciplinary approach to care, cultural considerations, and neglect and abuse are integrated throughout Strategies and resources for caring for older adults with dementia are discussed for each vulnerable population
