Social Work and Dementia : Good Practice and Care Management Paperback / softback

Part of the University of Bradford Dementia Good Practice Guides series

Description

A practical resource written specifically for social care professionals working with people with dementia and their families, this book gives guidance on person-centred good practice throughout the care process from the initial diagnosis, through day care, respite care, long-term care, and death and attachment. The guide will enable social workers to manage their cases effectively and empathetically, making appropriate, culturally sensitive decisions and acting as advocates for this growing client group.

It contains essential background material about the financial and legal context, including an explanation of the relevance of the Mental Health Act 1983.

The author locates weak points in current provision and makes practical suggestions for future developments.

Social Work and Dementia will enable social services to meet the needs of older clients experiencing dementia, and to understand, apply and contribute to new developments in their care.
