Product Description

From the Author

An invaluable guide for those who care for vulnerable adults
This book is for those, non-professionals as well as professionals, who care for vulnerable adults. It is intended as a book which clarifies many common real-life situations, being firmly rooted in everyday social care practice. It is not a legal text book as such. Rather its aim is to provide a sort of map (for non-lawyers!) through social care law as it relates to vulnerable adults (taken to mean people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, or mental health problems). Each chapter starts with a case study which raises the kind of issues which confront carers and explores how the law relates to them. There are chapters on community care, advocacy, acting on someone else’s behalf, setting up home, abuse, protecting people from themselves, and helping vulnerable adults who are the victims of crime. We have attempted to write this book in an engaging and innovative style. We very much hope this will appeal to readers who need clear guidance on how the law relates to social care in practice.
