"Significantly, this book provides a comprehensive grounding in what it means to be a health professional caring for the older adult. The authors address important issues such as an exploration of the attitudes, knowledge, willingness and future intentions to work with older people. The role of health care professionals and their methods of practice are also considered. Issues such as learning and practice styles, the changing roles of health care practices, and the importance of teamwork provide the reader with an invaluable insight into modern professional practice. This book will have been successful if it encourages its reader to value the old people they care for and to promote opportunities for well-being and psychological growth rather than helplessness and deterioration in their old age. It therefore provides a contemporary description of students' attitudes, knowledge of ageing, intentions and willingness to work with older people, and highlights the need for gerontology courses in the undergraduate curriculum with more emphasis on healthy older people in the community".
Exploring Social Protection Arrangements for Older People
This book explores social protection opportunities for older people and how these can be harnessed to provide optimum protection for older people. It examines formal and informal social protection arrangements and the strength of these options for improving the well being of older people. The book argues that the traditional family support, especially in Africa, remains the best platform for protecting older people albeit, modernisation and other social change factors have weakened its effectiveness. Nonetheless, if state and non-state actors collaborate to strengthen the traditional family system and other community level structures such as religious groups and traditional leadership, better opportunities for protecting older people will be realised.
It is reasonable to expect that most people will live a relatively healthy life as they age, with their dignity intact and rights guaranteed.

Clear and accessible, the book will improve nurses' skills in safeguarding vulnerable older people, aided by the use of such helpful features as:• Detailed case studies to link theory with practice• Explicit 'Thinking Points' to encourage readers to reflect on how law, policy and ethics can be applied to their own practice• In-depth discussion of statutory and case law, and analysis of relevant Serious Case Reviews An essential read for students and qualified nurses alike, this text provides the reader with a solid foundation for clinical decision-making and safeguarding vulnerable older people, as well as a forum for discussion and reflection.
