Conclusion: Making Sense of Social Policy Fantastic book as it deals effectively with three huge topics that are inextricably linked to be relevant to both practitioners and academics.

The emphasis on human rights provides a useful and necessary framework on which all practice and interventions with older people should be based.

    Preview This book provides an up-to-date and authoritative overview of the development of social work with older people in the UK. They emphasise understanding the diversity of the older population and enabling older people to make the most of their strengths and capacities. Both of us have lengthy practice backgrounds in working with older people, and have greatly appreciated the importance and rewards of this area of practice. One area for future development is to explore policy divergence post devolution.
