Ethics and the Elderly - The challenge of long-term care
Author: Sarah M Moses
This study of long-term elder care through the lens of the Christian ethical tradition, drawing on both Catholic and Protestant sources, offers a history of the ethics of caregiving, a snapshot of the the contemporary situation in the US, biblical perspectives on aging and eldercare, and models for future care.
Academically sound and written at an accessible level, it will be a valuable text for courses in medical ethics and moral theology, and will also appeal to non-academic audiences dealing with the growing field of eldercare.
Sarah M. Moses is assistant professor of religion at the University of Mississippi. She earned a Master of Divinity degree at Harvard Divinity School and a Ph.D. in theological ethics from Boston College.
