Critical Issues in Social Work with Older People by Mo Ray

Book Description

This timely text highlights the importance of informed and critical practice in social work with older people. With an emphasis on reflection throughout, it argues for the need to rethink how social workers support some of the most vulnerable people in society. The text begins with an exploration of the relationship between gerontology, the study of aging, and social work, and demonstrates that a gerontological approach has long been missing from social work practice. The central chapters consider key issues affecting older people and social work practice, such as: * risk of poverty * memory loss and dementia * palliative and end of life care * loss and bereavement * moving into a care home Bringing together theoretical and research insights, this agenda-setting text provides a sound base for creative practice with older people. All those looking to make a positive and discernible difference to older people will find this text rewarding reading.
