Elder Maltreatment Items, Subgroups, and Types: Policy and Practice Implications.
Hall, Philip A.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v28 n3 p191-205 1989
Examined 288 validated instances of elder maltreatment. Findings suggest that these phenomena pose questions as diverse as those faced in identifying child and spouse maltreatment. A partial typology is offered to guide further investigations. Implications for policy and practice suggest a cautious approach to value-laden issues while recognizing the need for intervention.
