Social Work with Older People provides an authoritative and
practical guide to working with older people in a range of
settings. It addresses the complexities of individual work with
older people, as well as work with families, groups and the wider
community, and is not afraid to tackle the challenges as well as
opportunities of practice in this area.

The book begins by explaining the demographic changes that have
led to a ?greying? of the general population. It goes
on to discuss the diversity in experiences of ageing across
society, and the range of issues which confront older people and
those who wish to work proactively with them. Clear attention is
paid to the processes of assessment, care planning and review, with
readers encouraged to reflect on developing good practice through
case studies and exercises. Although it has a strong practical
emphasis, the book also stresses the value of theoretical
perspectives, with insights from fields such as sociology and
psychology woven throughout the book. Clear links are also made to
policy guidelines and organizational standards, without losing
sight of the deeper, often more complex, issues that arise when
working with older people.


Social Work with Older People will be essential reading
for social work students and practitioners, but also for others who
are interested in the development of practice with older people as
citizens and service users.
