Older People, Ageing and Social Work

Mark Hughes

Publisher: Allen & Unwin

Format: Paperback

Social workers are engaged in ongoing practice with older people in a variety of contexts, from hospitals, aged care assessment teams and mental health services to employment, housing and rehabilitation services. This book draws on theoretical, research, policy and practice knowledge to inform contemporary practice with older people. It demonstrates that high-level professional skills are required in this area, as well as detailed knowledge of the issues affecting older people's lives. The authors argue that practitioners need to take into account the social and emotional needs of the older people they work with, as well as the practical and administrative aspects of their roles. They emphasise understanding the diversity of the older population and enabling older people to make the most of their strengths and capacities.
