Older Adults' Perspectives on Death and Dying in Prison
Journal of Criminal Justice
Incarcerated people often have extensive health needs compared to their community-dwelling peers. This is especially the case among older adults, who represent a sizeable and growing portion of the U.S. prison population with a concomitant health burden. While research has expanded in recent years regarding health-related experiences among older adults in prisons, research surrounding their perceptions of death and dying in these settings remains limited.
