Review:

Working with Older People is a welcome new resource for social work students, practitioners and educators. The book is thoughtfully structured and written in a refreshingly accessible style, which does not compromise either the depth of discussion or the range of sources and issues presented... an unusually enjoyable and accessible read.’Journal of Social Work

Working with Older People deserves to be on reading lists on social work courses because it successfully combines discussion of relevant theory, legislation, policy and practice issues in ways that are accessible without being simplistic.’ Ageing and Society
