A conceptual model for the mobility patterns of nursing home admissions

Authors:
McAULEY William J., USITA Paula M.
Journal article citation:
Gerontologist, 38(6), December 1998, pp.726-734.
Publisher:
Gerontological Society of America

This article draws from the literature in long term care, demography and geography to develop an initial conceptual framework to explain variations in the patterns of nursing home moves in the USA. The conceptual framework is bolstered by preliminary data from state censuses of nursing homes that asked about the origins of current nursing home residents. The data suggest that a relatively high proportion of nursing home residents move to a different county in the process of moving to a nursing home. The research and applied implications of the framework are discussed.

Care management and professional autonomy: the impact of community care legislation on social work with older people

Author:
LYMBERY Mark
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Social Work, 28(6), December 1998, pp.863-878.
Publisher:
Oxford University Press

This article explores the extent to which the role of care manager has altered the nature of social work practice with older people. It outlines key theories of professions and their applicability to social work, and critically analyses the impact of the 'new managerialism' within social services departments. The article also examines the nature of social workers' practice with older people following the impact of community care legislation, and concludes that the impact on the social work profession has been to locate an increasing control of practice with social work managers, with potentially serious consequences for the continuation of a distinctive social work role in relation to services for older people.

Impact of chronic systemic and neurological disorder on disability, depression and life satisfaction

Authors:
BROE Anthony, et al
Journal article citation:
International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, 13(10), October 1998, pp.667-673.
Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

The impact of physical disorder has traditionally been measured in terms of mortality, but this approach is not appropriate for chronic disorders, where the impact is more on quality of life than on longevity. In this article the authors examine the impact of chronic systemic and neurological disorders on three quality of life indicators: disability, depression and life satisfaction in a sample of older people in Australia.
