Facilitating Self Care Practices in the Elderly, Issues 1-2; Issue 1990
This up-to-date book is a synthesis of current knowledge from published sources and expert consultants relating to three commonly occurring problems in home health care practice--self-administration of medications, family caregiving issues, and teaching the elderly. For each problem addressed, assessment guides and interventions are outlined, making this book an invaluable resource for professionals, researchers, and agencies concerned with providing top-quality care for the elderly. Home health care agencies can use the guide for orientation of new staff and inservice education for current staff. Home health care staff can use many of the assessment guides and resource lists in their work with clients. Facilitating Self Care Practices in the Elderly can also serve as a basis for standard development. Researchers interested in these clinical problems will find that the literature review and synthesis will facilitate the development of the theoretical underpinning for their research. Educators will find the book helpful in courses and as a basis for curriculum development.
