Older people and the law
PolicyPress/BASW, Nov 1, 2006 - Law - 170 pages
This book is a much-needed revised and updated edition of Elders and the law (PEPAR Publications, 1993). It describes the legal framework for working with older people following the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 and the modernising agenda in health and social care. Written by a social worker and a lawyer, the book highlights the opportunities for inter-professional working and combines professional perspectives on providing health and social care services in the community, housing needs and entering residential care, dealing with financial matters and end of life issues.
