'At Last, here is a practical guide to approaching care of older people in hospitals as well as other settings. For this reason, it should be considered an essential ward teaching and mentoring tool. Illustrated with varied and realistic scenarios, this book encourages self-reflection and includes learning outcomes and activities to facilitate learning. This book should certainly be considered for inclusion in libraries and care settings and is recommended as supplementary reference for care workers undertaking diploma-level training'
'This insightful, accessible book is timely in that there is a drive for educators to equip students with the evidenced- based approaches that will assist them to effectively contribute to care when working with older people. I recommend this text without reservations' - Liz Williams, University of Glamorgan
Students will be recommended to purchase this text as there is a high level of information relevant to a specific unit within our course. The text itself is very factual with lots of data evidence to support points. The book is structured well and it is easy to find any required information. There is a good use of case studies to support points from varying different health and social care settings to allow students to visualize theory to practice. There are extra activities provided throughout to allow students to think deeper about topic. The use of diagrams supports learning.
I have recommended this book to year 1 nursing students as a guide for those with no previous care background. This book covers the fundamentals and essentials of caring for the aging population.
Recommended to our students studying Caring for Older People as part of their Level 3 Health & Social Care course - very easy to read - useful text.
Excellent text, will recommend for students undertaking one of the second year assignments
Suitable for L3 Yr 2 students - well laid out but would have benefitted from more images/pictures. Case studies interesting and relevant - I particularly like the case study on Dorothy Brown which Level 3 students will relate to.
Easy to read and useful for students who will be working one on one with older people.
Very useful text

It is a really good book to read, but my students need a more philosophic undertone in the argument. It is still to early to decide; so, may be it will be an 'essential'!
