Although the number of elderly people in Britain increases steadily, the law in relation to their particular needs is a relatively neglected field. The first book devoted to the examination of the law as it affects elderly people, The Law and Elderly People first appeared in 1989 and has been throughly revised and updated to reflect the major changes that have occured. Concerned for the independence and autonomy of both the young elderly and the old elderly, the book covers employment and income, accomodation and housing, community and residential care, health provision and deliverly and family relationships, to provide an important guide to the most important legal issues. The Law and the Elderly will be of practical help to all those concerned with the welfare of the elderly and to undergraduates and lecturers in social work, law and gerontology.
