This third edition of Social Work Practice with the Elderly describes significant practice issues and current challenges facing gerontological social workers, who are working with the fastest growing demographic cohort in North America. Insightful and creative practitioners provide current accounts and case examples from their work in a variety of settings. The material includes both micro and macro practice and offers a focus on advanced specialty practice while also providing an advanced generalist model. All the chapters have been rewritten and updated by adding related additional readings and websites. Six new chapters have been added on sensory impairment, HIV/AIDS, elder abuse, community-assisted living, rural elderly, retirement and volunteerism.
