In the November-December Issue of Aging Today
posted 11.08.2017

By Alison Biggar

In the In Focus Section of the November–December 2017 issue of Aging Today, we probe the troubling issue of elder abuse and neglect. ASA Board member Bill Benson reveals insights into how hard abuse is to prevent by interviewing an overworked and underpaid APS worker through a typical day; UCSF professors detail a successful program for helping the police understand behavioral symptoms of dementia; and Dr. Laura Mosqueda discusses an effective model for giving caregivers relief that might prevent abuse, plus more.

Elsewhere in the issue, former Assistant Secretary of Aging Kathy Greenlee advocates for expanding LGBT research in federal surveys; United Hospital Fund’s Carole Levine points out the cost risks of hospital observation stays; and Project Inform’s Andrew Reynolds outlines why the baby boomer cohort is particularly at risk for Hepatitis C.
