Description : Although the topic of decision making capacity and older persons has been discussed in the literature, there still is much to be learned about it theoretically and practically. Experts continue to disagree about which standards are important for assessing decision making capacity. Questions such as: ?When should a capacity assessment be done on an older person and by whom?? are covered by the editors. Topics included in this volume are the application of an original framework for ethical decision making in long term care; an elder's capacity to decide to remain living alone in the community; the quest for helpful standardized instruments for evaluating decision making capacity; and end-of-life liability issues.

Description : Recognition and understanding of the special nutrition problems of the aged is changing along with the growing number of the elderly in the general population. In the eight years since the first edition of the Handbook of Nutrition in the Aged was originally published, both economic changes and health issues have contributed to the decreasing nutritional intake among the aged. New treatments such hyperalimenation and renutrition are now accepted as ways to restore and maintain optimum immune functions. Intended for gerentologists, nutritionists, dieticians and assisted living professionals, the third edition of Handbook of Nutrition in the Aged reviews some of the major nutritional problems occurring with significant frequency in elderly adults. Other topics discussed include the effects of the aging process, changes in social status, and financial conditions that significantly affect the approaches to treatment and study of nutritional and health problems of the aged.
