9781452202464: Community Resources for Older Adults: Programs and Services in an Era of Change

Community Resources for Older Adults: Programs and Services in an Era of Change, Fourth Edition, by Robbyn Wacker and Karen Roberto, provides an in-depth review of policy and programs for the "aging network," answering such key questions as "How have programs for older adults evolved?" "Who uses these resources?" "How are they delivered?" and "What challenges do service providers face in meeting the needs of the aging baby-boom generation?"

To give students the foundational knowledge they need to meet the needs of their older clients, the authors provide a theoretical framework for understanding the forces that shape older adults′ likelihood to seek assistance, include in-depth reviews of the current body of empirical literature in each program area, and discuss the challenges programs and services will face in the future.

Descripción SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 4th Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. This text is intended for courses on community services and programmes for the elderly, typically found in gerontology departments and departments of social work. Rather than simply focusing on building awareness of the various programmes and services available, the authors stress the importance of the theoretical knowledge that will assist in understanding the social and psychological dynamics of help-seeking behaviour. By understanding the social and psychological needs of the elderly and their families, as well as the services available to them, students will be better able to take advantage of resources available to help their clients. This new edition will update the key policy updates affecting older adults as well as the census data offered throughout the text. It will also update the many unique pedagogical features such as the sections titled FYI, best practices, case studies and the web and national resources. Increased attention will be focused on aging and diverse populations and the idea of cultural competency than previous editions, as this area has continued to become a critical part of delivering effective care. Also, international issues, faith-based services, services for LGBT elders, rural elders, immigrants, and other special populations will also be covered or expanded in the new edition.
