Previous price: £13.50
In this book Sue Newton shares her view of the fundamental principles that underpin the basic Adult Placement model in the UK. She shows how Adult Placement is becoming a growing and important community resource that fits in well with the Government’s current thinking on the future development of social care. The author explains what Adult Placement is, where it has developed from, who would benefit from using the resource and describes the roles and responsibilities of the people involved in a placement. The placement process is described in detail including the assessment of the service user and the Adult Placement Carer, and the matching and supporting of the placement. The basic ethos of the Adult Placement model is explained, showing how person-centred and flexible Adult Placement is, and the reader is referred on to where more detailed information can be found on particular relevant topics. The book identifies the quality standards that are required for an Adult Placement service and the role that the National Association of Adult Placement Services (NAAPS) has played in defining and promoting these standards. The author looks at how the current provision of Adult Placement could be expanded and developed and what challenges face the resource both here in the UK and in Europe.
