Aging: Practice Interventions  

Lenard W. Kaye

Social workers address older adult issues at all levels of practice including program planning, policymaking, and service delivery and across a wide range of community and institutional settings. While various models of practice intervention with older adults exist, the focus has increasingly been on the integration of strategies that emphasize strength-based and person-centered perspectives to geriatrics and gerontological social work practice. The older adult population is expanding dramatically and becoming increasingly culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse, and social work services need to be responsive to the variety of issues faced by a more heterogeneous older adult population with complex needs who also bring a lifetime of intellectual and experiential assets and heightened expectations.
