People are leading significantly longer lives than previous generations did, and the proportion of older people in the population is growing. Residential care for older people will become increasingly necessary as our society ages and, we will require more of it. At this moment in time, the rights of older people receive attention at international and regional levels, with the United Nations, the Organization of American States and the African Union exploring?the possibility of establishing new conventions for the rights of older persons. This book explores the rights of older people and their quality of care once they are living in a care home, and considers?how we can commence the?journey towards?a human rights framework?to ensure?decent and?dignified?care?for?older people. The book takes a comparative approach to present and?future challenges facing the care home sector for older people in?Africa (Kenya), the Arab world (Egypt), ?Australia, China, England, Israel,?Japan and?the USA.?An international panel of experts have contributed chapters, identifying how their particular society cares for its older and oldest people, the extent to which demographic and economic change has placed their system under pressure and the role that?residential elder?care homes play in their culture. The book also explores the extent to which constitutional or other rights form a foundation to the regulatory and legislative structures to residential elder care and?it?examines?the important?concept of dignity.?? As a multi-regional study of the care of older person from a human rights perspective, this book will be of excellent use and interest, in particular to students and researchers of family and welfare law, long-term care, social policy,?social work,?human rights?and?elder law. ?
