Beschreibungen

Caring for older people encompasses complex physical, social and psychological needs, and poses many diverse challenges for nurses. Caring for Older People in the Community provides nurses with an up to date practical resource that explores these challenges. Throughout the book the use of reflection points and scenarios enable the reader to reflect on current issues and consider how underpinning theory supports practice. Each chapter is evidence based and fully referenced, with full contact details of charities.  This book will appeal to health and social care practitioners working in community settings, and will help nurses meet the challenge of nursing and the ageing population with empathy and understanding of diverse needs
