The Law and Older Persons Book Excerpt:

According to Kapp (director, Office of Geriatric Medicine & Gerontology, Wright State University School of Medicine), therapeutic jurisprudence is a framework for "insisting that proponents of particular legal interventions justify those intrusions into otherwise private territory by concretely showing...sufficient real benefits for those whom the law supposedly is intended to help." Kapp uses the analytical lens of therapeutic jurisprudence to explore the ways in which the law in practice, as opposed to theory, can exert positive or negative effects on older people in a variety of contexts, including long term care regulation, end-of-life medical care, protection of research subjects, guardianship, and other interventions.

The Law and Elderly People Book Excerpt:

Although the number of elderly people in Britain is increasing steadily, the law in relation to their particular needs is a relatively neglected field. The Law and Elderly People was the first text to provide easily accessible information for those involved in advice-giving and service provision in this rapidly developing field. This second edition has been fully revised and completely updated to reflect the major legal and social changes which have recently occurred. Concerned for the independence and autonomy of both young elderly and the old elderly, the book covers employment and income, accomodation and housing, community and residential care, health provision and delivery and family relationships, thus providing an important guide to the most important legal issues. The Law and Elderly People 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.

Theories on Law and Ageing Book Excerpt:

This book is about trying to answer questions. These questions were well introduced by Prof. Margaret Hall in the opening of her chapter in this book: “The fundamental idea of ‘law and aging’ as a discrete category of legal principle and theory is controversial: how and why are ‘older adults’ or ‘seniors’ or ‘elders’ (the very terminology is controversial and fraught with difficulties) a discrete and distinct group for whom ‘special’ legal thought and treatment is justified? For some, a category of law and aging is inherently paternalistic, suggesting that older persons are, like children, especially in need of the protection of the law. In this sense, the argument continues, the category itself internalizes ageist presumptions about older adults and is therefore inherently flawed and even harmful. If certain older adults are, because of physical or mental infirmities, genuinely in need of an enhanced level of legal protection, this entitlement should be conceptualized in terms of their disability; older adults are not a distinct group but an arbitrarily delineated demographic category which contains within it any number of groups that are legitimately distinct for the purposes of legal theory (the di- bled; women; persons of colour; Aboriginal persons; rich and poor; etc.) Indeed, the arti- cial category of “older adults” may be seen as obfuscating, submerging these more meaningful distinctions.

Geriatric Nephrology Book Excerpt:

The year was 1943. As a third-year medical student at Stanford, I was about to witness the beginning of a medical miracle. Dr. Arthur Bloomfield, Professor of Medicine, had selected my patient, a middle aged man, who was dying of acute pneumococcal pneumonia, as one of the first patients to receive miniscule doses (by today's standards) of his meagre supply of a new drug - penicillin. The patient's response amazed everyone especially this impressionable medical student. The rest of the story is history. With one stroke, the introduction of penicillin removed from the medical scene the 'friend of the aged' - lobar pneumonia. The consequences, which no one could have imagined at the time, are still becoming manifest as other 'miracles' such as respirators, artificial kidneys and many potent new antibiotics have come upon the scene. All of us are aware that these miracles have created a variety of new challenges around the states of dying and near dying. We have no easy answers for these problems. Nevertheless as dialysis techniques, especially CAPD, are applied more widely to the treatment of the elderly, the task of helping the patient meet death with dignity becomes increasingly important and vexing because once begun, dialysis is difficult to terminate.
