Ethics of Everyday Life in Geriatric Care

By Miriam F. Parker, Phyllis Eribaum-Zur, Eileen R. Chichin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2008

The authors examine ethical issues which emerge from situations within geriatric continua of care, discussing two example cases in depth, and detailing the processes through which the care providers attempted to find an ethical solution in these cases. The examples, while dissimilar to one another, both involve conflicts between personal autonomy and the care providers' responsibilities.
