Overview

Elder Practice addresses an issue of increasing interest to the spectrum of professionals, paraprofessionals, and volunteers who work with the elderly-how to serve the rapidly expanding population of older adults who spend their later years as member of the community rather than as residents of an institutional facility.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Papers from a controversial October 1992 conference held in Bielefeld, Germany, explore the historical and philosophical roots of the concepts of sanctity of life and human dignity. Sections on these concepts, the concept of a person, problems of critical care, and the role of the state contain essays on subjects including human dignity and genetic tests, the concept of sanctity of life in contemporary bioethical discussion, persons as self-originating sources of value, and key moral concepts in the allocation of critical care.
