Description


Praise for earlier editions:

Beaulieu's book... clearly articulates what on-the-ground nursing home social work practice involves... These resources are useful as it is rare to be exposed to this type of information or detail during one's educational training... Beaulieu reveals layer upon layer of social worker roles, responsibilities, and important tools. This is a comprehensive guide for social workers.

-The Gerontologist

This is an essential compendium of information and insight for the nursing home social worker on how to successfully navigate the day-to-day responsibilities and complexities of this role. Written for both new and seasoned social workers, it clearly addresses everything there is to know in one handy resource. The substantially updated third edition reflects the latest political, economic, and cultural trends and requirements for nursing home facilities and how they impact social workers. It includes a new chapter on how knowledge of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) can aid in resident care plus major updates on disaster planning including workforce safety tips for pandemics and an expanded chapter on abuse, neglect, and mistreatment. Along with another new chapter to reflect current practice focusing on pandemics and disasters, including COVID-19.

The book delineates specific resources and supplemental materials to assist the social worker in their daily role. The third edition is particularly relevant in its coverage of how ethnicity and culture impact nursing home admission and stays as well as undertreated pain in older adults. Purchase includes digital access for use on most mobile devices or computers.
