Caring for Older People
Caring for Older People has been specially adapted for Australia, and offers a systematic and imaginative approach to care planning based on the authors' belief in the positive aspects of old age. Care of the whole person is discussed in detail: physical, psychological, social, educational and spiritual needs are all covered. The need for care workers to have an awareness of the values of a multicultural society is stressed throughout. Care workers are encouraged to question what is involved in the caring process and to reflect on its impact on their own lives. The work-based activities develop the knowledge and skills needed to be an effective care worker. Information is presented clearly and simply throughout, making Caring for Older People an invaluable book for those training in the care sector or caring for an older person in their home.
