BEYOND GOOD INTENTIONS: SUPPORT WORK WITH OLDER PEOPLE, Anne Opie (1995, NZ)

Caregivers play a key role in sustaining home-based care, yet caregivers of those with chronic illness are internationally recognised as being vulnerable to stress and requiring practical and emotional support. Beyond Good Intentions offers an analysis of the effectiveness of social work practice to caregivers and people with a dementia. It emphasises the complexity of properly supportive social work practice with these two client groups but highlights the ways in which this complexity is substantially suppressed in everyday practice. The diuscussion of the effectiveness of this practice moves beyond the micropractices of individual workers to address the complex interactions between managerialist and ageing discourses, the health organisational structures and service objectives, and the levels of resourcing and issues of social work training in social work with older people. This book provides an important benchmark against which subsequent studies of support services to people with health related disablilities and those family members who care for them can be evaluated.
