While elder abuse is a topic that has been widely explored, elder self-neglect is a subject that has not really been defined, much less discussed at any length. This volume is the first comprehensive work on the prevalent geriatric problem of self-neglect. It contains original clinical research and analyzes the medical, psychological, and social aspects of geriatric self-neglect from various perspectives of professionals within the geriatric field. This volume opens with an overview of elder self-neglect, including a general framework that describes exactly what is involved with this clinical problem. The authors then explore the broad societal implications of self-neglect before going on to examine special risks and subgroups that are associated with this dilemma. The final chapter investigates areas of research likely to enhance further understanding of this problem. Social workers, nurses and geriatric professionals who are concerned with this threat to our elderly will find this volume to be a valuable resource that provides an interdisciplinary perspective on health and social services.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There have been difficulties in developing a national policy on elder abuse during recent years. Even when research on elder abuse was coming to the fore, the area of neglect was not keeping pace. And when neglect was the subject of investigation, caregiver neglect rather than self-neglect was the primary focus of research. With the publication of Self-Neglecting Elders: Clinical Dilemma, a giant stride has been made to fill this void, and the results amply justify the efforts of the editors, Eloise Rathbone-McCuan and Dorothy R. Fabian, and their fellow contributors to this text. This is a most welcome addition to a long overlooked area."-Journal of Applied Gerontology
." . . is must reading for gerontologists, geriatric social workers, geriatric nurses and all those who work in the fields of research and administration relevant to planning and policy making for the frail elderly."-Clinical Gerontologist
