[Prisons and release of elderly prisoners].


:The proportion of older prisoners increases with demographic change. The situation in prison and the release from prison are related with particular risks especially for elderly people. Systematically evaluated experiences and findings of the specific needs and requirements of elderly prisoners are rare. The Institute for Gerontological Research investigated the situation of older prisoners in the project AIBA--Older Prisoners: Particular Requirements--Special Offers? (funded by the Federal Ministry of Justice, August-December 2012). Their situation in everyday life, the preparation for and the experience of release were studied. The results show that the meaning of age in prison varies. Offers that focused on the individual needs were evaluated positively and a further need of special offers was apparent. Release is complicated by administrative barriers and improved preparation for release is needed.
