Social Work with the Elderly
Provides busy social work and health care practitioners with an accessible guide to adult safeguarding in the context of mental capacity and financial abuse. Drawing on evidence and contemporary examples from practice this book will help readers understand the new landscape of safeguarding adults since the implementation of the Care Act 2014 and the introduction of Adult Safeguarding Boards. There are chapters on the current political landscape of adult social work, specific issues and contexts that make people vulnerable (social isolation, mental capacity, dementia), and important methods of assessment and intervention. A range of pedagogical features are also used to aid learning and understanding including the use of case studies, reflection points, brief exercises and further reading.
Post compulsory teachers now work in a variety in different contexts and can now find themselves working with an ever widening range of vulnerable adults. Understanding a wide range of safeguarding issues is vital and more important than ever, this book is well worth all those who will be working with vulnerable adults, especially in the community or care home settings.
