Gerontological Social Work by William J. Reid
Book DescriptionThis eminently practical book applies the task-centered model to gerontological practice across various settings (community based, hospital based, home healthcare, etc.). After an introductory chapter presenting demographic background information and outlining the common problems and needs of an elderly population, the book describes the continuum of care and the principal providers of services. Gerontological Social Work features in-depth coverage of specific client problems, such as physical or mental health, caregiving, home and personal safety, senior living, and long-term care arrangements. A series of task planners offer a menu of possible actions that can resolve or alleviate a designated problem. Rating scales, schedules, and other forms assist the practitioner and client in the intervention process. An appendix classified by topic lists hundreds of Web sites related to work with the elderly.
