Description:

This important book brings together an impressive array of experts who seek to assist family and friends in recognising the danger signs that surround an at-risk elder, and points out the vital, but often subtle, distinctions between types of behaviour that give cause for worry and those which can best be described as idiosyncratic. The essays offer suggestions for appropriate assistance that maintains respect for elder autonomy and freedom.
