This chapter provides a greater understanding of the mental, physical, and social concerns facing aging inmates and those who must provide for their care. It also addresses end-of-life issues resulting from mandatory sentencing practices that have produced policies to accommodate an increasing number of frail and dying inmates. Finally, a section on social work practice with this special population identifies useful approaches for practitioners as they develop specific case management strategies.

Keywords:   aging inmates, elderly inmates, social work practice, end-of-life
