Community Care A Reader Press Reviews

Reviews of the first edition: 'The chapters cover a huge variety of issues and perspectives. Some contributions focus upon new areas of interest (such as markets, contracts and care management), others concentrate upon some of the social building blocks of community care (such as relatives, friends and neighbours), while yet others look at specific areas of interest including mental health, 'normalisation' and elderly people. All of this adds up to a genuinely interdisciplinary taster.' - Health Service Journal 'As a source of up-to-date information on a breadth of related subjects, the book is a valuable reference for students. As a handy update for practitioners with an interest in some of the classic and latest thinking on community care issues, it offers endless stimulation...' - Nursing Times
