Home Health Care
Home health care for the elderly is a rapidly growing area and as a result practitioners need to be familiar with essential `do's and don'ts' of responsible geriatric case practice. To answer this need, this volume introduces the skills needed by a practitioner to work effectively with the elderly in the home care setting.
The principles of home health care case management, case planning and contracting and evaluating the service delivery efforts of home health care programmes are among the topics explored. The author also addresses the education and training demands of a wide range of home health care practitioners. This comprehensive book will be an invaluable professional handbook for social and health service workers se
