In this study of gerontological ethics and long-term care, Moses offers a history of the ethics of caregiving, an analysis of the present situation vis-a-vis contemporary society and Christian perspectives, and models for future care that incorporate an ethical responsibility to care.

At this historical moment where an aging population, advances in medical care, and the rising costs of such care across the board have made ethics of health care a pressing national question, Ethics and the Elderly offers timely and useful reflections for ethicists, pastoral care givers, and medical providers.

Academically sound and written at an accessible level, it will be a valuable text for courses in medical ethics and Catholic moral theology, and will also appeal to non-academic audiences dealing with the growing field of eldercare.Sarah M. Moses;, Sarah M. Moses
