Recent residential care revelations, recent legislation and policy directions (The Children's Act, Community Care), and the introduction of training courses mean that residential care practice is under national focus. "The Handbook of Residential Care" addresses the particular problems experienced by residential staff by bringing together many areas of work, different jobs and responsibilities, in a variety of perspectives and settings and addresses the challenges they face. In this practical guide, the author has brought together a combination of real examples and case studies, analysis, guidance and reflective discussion to present a complete examination of working in a residential setting, both for the elderly and for children. John Burton examines the fundamentals of the work such as time management, keeping a diary, first contact with a new resident, creating the right environment, building relationships with children, and management styles. He also gives specific examples of the day-to-day running of a residential centre such as the instigation of a non-smoking policy and the management of bed times in children's residential care.
