Making Aging in Place Work will help social workers and family members of elderly individuals improve the quality of life for loved ones by enabling the aging to stay in their current living arrangement for as long as possible. Addressing issues ranging from home modification to treatment of depression, this book will help you identify the needs of the elderly in order to offer them a comfortable and more independent life. You will discover how home modifications, such as making all rooms wheelchair accessible and installing a bathroom on the first floor, can provide important physical support which may facilitate your loved ones’ability to remain in their own home. Through Making Aging in Place Work, you will realize what studies of naturally occurring retirement communities have discovered --that living near family and friends can provide the physical and psychosocial comfort that gives the elderly courage and helps them be more independent. You will also find valuable information on a wide variety of subjects related to aging at home including:
discovering support systems in subsidized housing so you can implement a similar program in your community
examining how you can gear your service toward individual needs and what impact it may have on aging to better tailor your services to individual clients
understanding what professional service providers feel is important may not be the same as what the resident considers important in terms of aging at home
keeping a functional nursing care facility set up in the garage or single room with all of the medical appliances and equipment necessary to support a resident in need of care on siteFrom Making Aging in Place Work, you will discover that each situation must be individually addressed as there is no blanket solution for all aging people to remain in their own home. You will find a broad spectrum of services covered in this unique book to help you provide the elderly in your life with a more comfortable and independent lifestyle.
