This is a manual designed as an aid to learning for anyone involved in the care of older people in group living situations - such as residential or nursing homes - hospitals, assisted housing schemes, or in their own homes. Above all, this text is for those who recognise that their work is people work, with all the complexity of emotions and values that such work involves - for those who are willing to rise to the challenge of dealing with some of the problems older people face - and for those that recognise that: older people are people first and foremost; staff working with older people are human too and have needs of their own, for example the need for support in certain circumstances; staff want guidance on how a commitment to treating those they provide care for as people can be maintained in the face of very heavy demands on time, energy, and emotional reserves. This volume recognises the emotionally and demanding nature of the work of caregivers and explores how you can keep on top of your own needs of others figure so highly. It includes: background information, handouts for courses or training sessions, guidance on training exercises, and overhead transparency templates.
