Enabling Future Care

Little attention has been paid to the immense struggles facing disabled people and their caregivers as they try to plan their long-term futures. This book sets out practical ways to maximise future care options for such community care user groups. It focuses on the priorities of older caregivers and people with learning disabilities to give numerous suggestions for increasing control people have over their affairs and links these to central legislation and entitlement issues. The book will be invaluable to professionals and academics who work with families tackling pressing future care decisions.

Poverty

This ethnographic study of two social work teams combines a participant observation study of social workers with an analysis of the relationship between poverty and social work. It also incorporates findings from a three year qualitative study of social service users’ and carers’ experiences of community care. The book develops an unusual eclectic approach by applying psychological, sociological and social policy constructs to the study of poverty and social work. In conclusion it points the way forward to future social work practice, policy and research in relation to issues of financial deprivation and social exclusion.
