Caring for elders outside of institutions is the fastest growing sector of US health care. Building on their research study at the Park Ridge Center, editors Holstein and Mitzen, together with a team of experts, examine the complexities involved in developing an ethics for community-based long-term care. They also challenge policymakers to make home care a more viable option for older people in need. Chapters address many of the ethical and practical problems that arise in the care of older people with physical and mental disabilities--including how to allocate scarce funds, how to keep good caregivers, how to balance concerns of autonomy, risk and safety, and worker stress. The volume is an excellent resource for practitioners, policymakers, and students
