About This Book

Are you aware of the issues and concerns of older adults? Are you perplexed by their behaviours, actions and responses? Would you like to counsel them more effectively? In Counselling Older Adults, gerontologist Helen Ko provides an overview of the issues in later years, and presents a research-based, indigenous model for counselling older persons. The book will be a valuable resource for healthcare workers, social service staff, caregivers, supervisors of older workers, and older adults. It incorporates the cultural, religious, socioeconomic and political environment of the Asian context and the Singapore society, and will illuminate and engender a deeper understanding of older persons. It will also provide a framework for counselling them more effectively.
