Critical Issues in Social Work With Older People (Paperback, First): Mo Ray, Miriam Bernard, Judith Phillips Critical Issues in Social Work With Older People (Paperback, First)
Mo Ray, Miriam Bernard, Judith Phillips
R916 Discovery Miles 9 160 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

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.

Care (Hardcover): Judith Phillips Care (Hardcover)

Care is a diverse and evolving concept. It is taken as a natural part of life yet it is shaped by philosophical, ideological, political and economic arguments concerning its definition and purpose as well as how, where and to whom it is provided and funded.

This lucid book provides an introduction to the concept of care, mapping out and unravelling the complex debates that surround its theory and practice. Key aspects of care, such as boundaries, cultural and geographical spheres of care, the ethics of care and citizenship, are explored in full. For social workers, nurses and those engaged in social care the book also aims to deepen understanding of professional experiences, assumptions and values by examining practice and decision-making.

Appropriate practice scenarios and issues appear throughout to encourage the reader to reflect on professional issues including the risks associated with care, care management, partnership working, ecological and empowerment approaches. The book concludes with a framework for a reconceptualisation of care, located within the challenges of technological advances and globalisation.

Care will appeal to students in the social and health sciences and social care professions and anyone reflecting on the importance of care in their work.

Reviewing Care Management for Older People (Paperback): Bridget Penhale, Judith Phillips Reviewing Care Management for Older People (Paperback)
Bridget Penhale, Judith Phillips
R683 Discovery Miles 6 830 Special order

The book explores central issues such as power, group goals, and the effects of the environment. It uses as its reference base both the published literature and examples from case eight studies of groups run by people from different professional backgrounds... The discussion of the power relationship between different members of the group is particularly welcome: user empowerment has become a neglected area of concern in books on groupwork... For those new to the field, this is well worth a read.' - Mental Health Today 'The book includes some insightful material on the need for greater flexibility in service provision. The book is valuable for pointing out how much more research and development is still required.' - Age and Ageing 'This book should be of considerable interest to social and health practitioners and policy makers.' - Ageing and Society 'The key question this text addresses is the appropriateness of community care for elderly people in this country in the 1990s and beyond... This is a book which provides a wealth of material drawn from analysis of research and practice. It seeks not primarily to provide answers, but to articulate the central questions which point the way to the future agenda for research.' - Community Care 'This volume achieves two essential requirements of a worthwhile read - it is informative, and it makes you think. It is realistic, and well in touch with what is happening in the field. It expresses a range of doubts and concerns, but is nevertheless cautiously optimistic for the future, as long as resources are found.' - Policy Studies Care management for people with dementia has been the subject of much scrutiny since the introduction of the community care legislation. The development and implementation of several models of care management are discussed in this volume. Drawing together research to highlight the successes and the difficulties of translating the principles of care management into practice, it examines this subject with particular reference to: empowerment; needs-led assessment; and multi-disciplinary work. The book investigates the extent to which care management, with its emphasis on user choice and participation can be successfully applied to older people and their carers, and identifies key areas for further research and development in the field.

The need for employers to become more "family-friendly," and to support "work-life balance" is now widely accepted. It is on the agenda of senior managers, policy makers, the UK government and the EU. Yet this study shows that many line managers are tackling these issues without adequate training in how to respond to their employees' needs and requests for flexible working arrangements. Based on interviews with over 100 managers in over 30 workplaces in the UK, this report: focuses on the role of line managers in implementing family-friendly employment policies; considers day-to-day issues that arise, as employees and managers negotiate appropriate responses; and explores the relationship between managers' personal attributes, attitudes and experiences, and the organizational and policy context in which they operate. The report's findings will be of interest to managers in public and private sector organizations and SMEs, academics, human resources professionals, policy makers and stud

Women and Ageing provides a better understanding of what ageing is like for women and challenges the myths which have grown up around the ageing process. Blending the scholarly, the personal and the political, it reveals the range of strategies and identities women adopt to manage the transitions of the second half of the lifecourse. In doing so it uncovers not only the commonalities and similarities between mid-life and older women, but also some of the variation and diversity relating to ethnicity and race, class, disability and sexual orientation.
Women Ageing makes ordinary lives of ordinary women, as, in this instance, they grow older, more visible. Its findings have important implications for policy and practice. All those studying or working with older people, will find it an illuminating text.

Resulting from a major ESRC funded project as part of their programme of research on population and household change Family and Community Life of Older People reflects the interest in how older people are affected by social change which is currently a key theme in social science. It focuses on three areas: Bethnal Green in London; Wolverhampton in the Midlands; and Woodford in Essex. These areas were the subject of studies in the late 1940s and 1950s. Using these examples, it explores changes to the family and community lives of older people. It should prove of interest to students in social policy, urban sociology, gerontology, social work and community studies and will also be relevant to policy makers.

Family life has changed rapidly over te past fifty years and the number of people living longer increases year on year Family and Community Life of Older People revisits three areas (Bethnal Green in London, Wolverhampton in the Midlands and Woodford in Essex) which were the subject of classic studies in the late 1940s and 1950s and explores changes to the family and community lives of older people. The book examines issues such as:
*changes in household composition
*changes in the geographical proximity of kin and relatives
*the extent and type of help provided by the family
*contact and relationships with neighbours
*relationships with friends
*involvement in social and leisure activities
*experiences of minority ethnic groups.
These questions are explored through a unique set of data including census material, and survey data from interviews with over 600 older people. A key finding is that over the past 50 years we have moved from an old age experienced within the context of the family group to one shaped by personal communities in which friends may feature as significantly as immediate kin and relatives.
Family and Community Life of Older People is a major contribution to the sociology of the family, of ageing, and of urban life and points up the social policy issues for an ageing society.
