The subject of the abuse, neglect and exploitation of the elderly in community and residential care settings, is, increasingly, beginning to be recognized and addressed as a serious social concern in Britain. In Canada, by contrast, research and methods of prevention are more imaginative and advanced. This volume provides a comparative overview of the developments and issues in both countries and draws out good practice guidelines. The chapters analyze research, theory, policy development, legislation, practice issues, resources and new ideas. The specific aspects covered include clinical practice developments, cross-agency co-ordination, "self-help" for older people, awareness raising, financial abuse, and the medical and police perspectives. Models for abuse intervention which have been generated in Canada are described and assessed. The book includes ideas for training and tested training exercises.
