Although all older people have the same basic needs, failure to meet these needs – and the additional needs that arise in detention – can have particularly severe consequences, and take a heavy toll on both detainees and the people who work with them.

This booklet is intended to help States and others improve conditions for older detainees and detention-facility staff alike. The booklet focuses on prisons, but will provide a useful resource for other types of detention too.
