Product Description:

'This book has certainly stood the test of time, and now in its second edition, it continues to hold its own in the under-researched and grossly underestimated world of elder abuse. One of the main pleasures of the book is that it is written by an author who really understands the practicality of identifying, intervening and the continued support of the abused and the abuser from a multi-disciplinary perspective... The layout is clear and highly user-friendly, and this clarity is reflected through the jargon-free choice of language... What really sets the book apart from the others on the shelf is the exquisite way Pritchard uses situational analyses, vignettes and case studies to illustrate the essential skill needed by workers... It is an essential reference for any practitioner working within the community or hospital setting where older people are encountered.'

- Nursing Times

'This well researched, informative book deals with a complex subject, but the author covers the issues thoroughly and manages to raise the reader's awareness of elder abuse ... This book would be of use to anyone working with elderly people in a hospital or community setting. Students would find it easy to understand and full of useful learning material. The book is highly recommended to anyone working in this important area.'

- Therapy Weekly

'[The author's] reputation guarantees a large and diverse readership... The uniqueness of this book comes in the second part. The seven activities have combinations of learning objectives, learning activities, trainer activities, assessment, student activities and suggested reading... Workers engaged in all forms of training will find this book an invaluable aid.'

- Community Care

'An ideal teaching and training resource for those with responsibility for providing health and social care services to older people.'

- Age and Ageing

'Pritchard's training manual is more readable than it sounds. The first part contains five chapters discussing elder abuse which would provide a short overview for those new to the subject. The second part of this training manual focuses on a wide range of exercises.'

- Journal of Social Work Practice

'This handbook addresses the problems and challenges facing domiciliary workers of all kinds and provides a training package that can realistically be offered to all agencies engaged in this field (social services and community care in particular).'

- Abstracts in Social Gerontology

The second edition of this well-established book has been enlarged and completely updated and contains additional training exercises. Based on extensive research and practical experience, the book is designed to be used by both professionals and students to enable them to develop the awareness and skills necessary to deal with the wide variety of issues involved. The book has four main aims:

* To define the abuse of older people

* To raise the consciousness of the abuse

* To develop skills in recognising the abuse

* To develop skills in recognising the abuse

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
