Description - Models and Pathways for Person-Centered Elder Care by Audrey Weiner
This second volume in the series Leading Principles & Practices in Elder Care examines the issues and practices behind the day-to-day implementation of individualised elder care. Through profiles of pioneering model communities, readers learn what person-centred care looks like in practice. From the providers who are raising the bar for best practices in long-term care, readers gain direct experience in the successful processes behind transforming attitudes, practices, physical spaces, and organisational structures to accommodate increasingly collaborative and person-directed care. Professional staff from nurses to social workers to administrators will learn about the essential skills to be mastered and probable challenges to be overcome in the transformational journey from traditional elder care services to progressive modern ideals.
