Book - hardbound

How to Protect Elders from Harm, 2d (Protecting Elders From Harm) is the latest update to West's Legal Almanac Series. This book aims to help readers caring for or looking after an aged friend or relative facing health, financial, and other risks associated with their age or mental condition.

This title is written specifically with the non-attorney reader in mind, and helps the reader understand the regulatory frameworks in place to prevent harm to elders, as well as the litigation process to remedy harm that is caused. Including chapters on governmental protections, risks associated with traffic, hospital stays, nursing homes, medications and abuse, the reader will find guidance on what resources may be available to prevent - or at least mitigate - harms caused to their aged or infirm loved ones.

Protecting Elders From Harm also contains a glossary of terms, a thorough bibliography, checklists for evaluating possible harms, and an appendix containing recommended resources for elder abuse intervention.
