This chapter focuses on an important shared concern in gerontological social work and restorative justice: helping older adults who become frail, dependent, and vulnerable. It explores the benefits and limitations of social work and restorative practice approaches when working with older adults. It explores a basic contrast between the two disciplines in that gerontological social work focuses on the care of individual older adults, while restorative justice focuses on harm caused to individuals, families, and the community. Social work outcomes focus on preserving or enhancing the older adult's autonomy and dignity, while restorative outcomes focus on healing injury and repairing relationships.

Keywords:   gerontology, adult protective services, older adults, caregivers, intergenerational support
