“The beauty of this important book lies in its conclusion… This book provides the roadmap that has led us to our current dilemmas and offers the path forward to a truly just society for all.”
..this illuminating book takes us through the background and trajectory of the elder justice framework and what is needed for it to further evolve and finally meet the needs of older adults. True elder justice lies in eliminating all the facets of society that systematically exclude older adults from their basic human rights: ageism, paternalism, and , in some cases, frank discrimination. I am glad Ms. Nerenberg has given of herself to create this much needed guide for what we must do to ensure a society that demands elder justice.

Lisa Nerenberg provides the first comprehensive look at elder abuse prevention trends and strategies... She offers a meaningful response to many challenges endemic to elder abuse work. As a result, Lisa gives hope to the field... Beginning as a grassroots advocate a quarter century ago in San Francisco, Lisa developed and tested many viable elder abuse prevention programs herself..before exploring best practices elsewhere. This unique evolution and perspective give her the depth and breadth of understanding needed to write a book like this.
