Auch im Gesundheitssystem wird mehr und mehr ökonomisiert und es scheint, dass weniger der Patient mit seinem Leiden im Fokus des Betrachters steht als die Zahlen. Dieses Buch bildet dazu ein Gegengewicht und betont die Rückbesinnung auf den Patienten als ganzheitlichen Menschen, dem neben medizinischer und pflegerischer Fachkompetenz auch mit spiritueller Begleitung Linderung verschafft werden kann. Der Leidende mit seinen Ängsten, Hoffnungen und seiner Zuversicht und der Helfende mit seinem fachlichen Know-how und seinem menschlichen Handeln stehen im Blickfeld aller Beiträge. Sie geben Einblick in die unterschiedlichen Perspektiven der Disziplinen und versuchen herauszufinden, wie unter den gegebenen Umständen eine menschliche und allumfassende Versorgung von Kranken – im Sinne des Betroffenen – realisiert werden kann. Ausgehend vom biblischen Bild des guten Samariters, befassen sich die Autoren mit der Suche nach Antworten, wie einem Kranken unter den realen Gegebenheiten unseres Versorgungssystems bestmögliche Hilfe gewährt werden kann: Wie kann angesichts von Krankheit und Leid die interdisziplinäre Aufgabe des Heilens und Helfens gelingen? Welche Bedeutung haben religiöser Glaube und persönliche Spiritualität im Heilungsgeschehen? Ist eine derart umfassende Sorge ökonomisch-organisatorisch finanzier- und vertretbar? Für Pflegende, Ärzte, Soziale Dienste und Wissenschaftler der Fachgebiete. Aber auch interessierte Psychologen, Sozialarbeiter und Mitarbeiter im Krankenpastoral, für die Spiritualität ein Baustein in der Begleitung Kranker ist, finden hier Impulse für ihre Arbeit. „SALVIFICI DOLORIS - Dem Gutes tun, der leidet“ – unter diesem Motto trafen sich im Frühjahr 2013 auf der internationalen Tagung zum Welttag der Kranken Wissenschaftler und Praktiker aus den Professionen der Pflege, Medizin, Theologie, Seelsorge, Gesundheitswirtschaft, um sich auszutauschen und Handlungsanleitungen für die Zukunft der Krankenversorgung in unserer Gesellschaft zu entwickeln. Daraus entstand dieser Tagungsband, der mit seinen Beiträgen den Dialog von Wissenschaft und Praxis fördern möchte und aus unterschiedlichen Blickwinkeln die aktuellen Gegebenheiten aus Forschung und den Handlungsfeldern der Akteure im Hilfenetzwerk, in einem kritisch-reflexiven Austausch, beleuchtet.

Demenz – für die meisten Angehörigen betroffener Personen bedeutet dies, großen emotionalen Belastungen ausgesetzt zu sein. Das gewohnte Leben gerät durcheinander und Gegenwart wie Zukunft stehen wie ein kaum zu überwindender Berg vor ihnen. Wo finden Angehörige einen Ort, um sich mit anderen Betroffenen auszutauschen, rund um das Thema Demenz informiert zu werden? Wo finden sie Zeit, die Seele zur Ruhe kommen zu lassen? Mithilfe dieses Buches und der darin vorgestellten ökumenisch ausgerichteten, vielfach erprobten Gruppentreffen können SeelsorgerInnen betroffene Angehörige in dieser schweren Lebenssituation begleiten. In den fünf Treffen werden Themen wie Trauer und Abschied, der Umgang mit Schuldgefühlen, Dauerbelastung, soziale Vereinsamung sowie Glaube und Spiritualität aufgegriffen. Vor allem Räumlichkeiten in Kirchengemeinden sowie Alten- und Pflegeheimen eignen sich zur Durchführung mit bis zu 15 Personen. Materialien zu sämtlichen Treffen plus geeignete Werbemaßnahmen werden als Kopiervorlagen im Buch sowie online zum Download zur Verfügung gestellt. Die Autorin hat das Konzept im Zuge ihrer Dissertation evaluiert und erhielt dabei von über 90 Prozent der nahen Angehörigen positive Resonanz. Erfolgreich durchgeführt in verschiedenen Pfarreien und Einrichtungen der Erzdiözese München und Freising.

"Practical coverage of driving, day care, support groups, and respite is particularly welcome. This is a good book to have available, not just for social work faculty and students, but also for those in the health sciences, psychology, and sociology. It will be a useful resource for professionals coping with the increasing problems for family and community that an aging population and the epidemic of Alzheimer's disease bring with them....Recommended. Lower-level undergraduate through professionals/practitioners."--Choice Beyond the immediate and devastating effects dementia can have on individuals and their quality of life are the strains that are placed on the families, caregivers, and communities that support them. Social workers are in a unique position to address all these issues at the same time that they provide care for individuals with dementia. To facilitate the entrance of social workers into this area of care, Carol B. Cox has edited a volume of expert articles on the biological, psychological, and social aspects of dementia. . Readers will learn the latest assessment instruments, as well as how to distinguish between Alzheimer's and non-Alzheimer's dementias. Intervention strategies for every stage of dementia are presented. The effects of culture and diversity on the treatment of persons with dementia are examined, including examples of successful programs from several countries. The benefits and drawbacks of adult day services, community care, and residential care are discussed. Finally, a discussion of the legal, financial, and psychological stresses faced by caregivers of those with dementia rounds out this much needed text.

Most scholars do not consider the long-term nature of caregiving, but rather focus on a specific developmental period (e.g., old age) or a specific disability (e.g., cancer). Yet the most important lessons about caregiving may occur at any age, regardless of disabilities or other limitations. Caregiving is a lifelong process. It begins in a mother’s womb, continues throughout the lifespan, and ends after death. Caregiving Across the Lifespan emphasizes caregiving as a process that occurs throughout one’s life. It discusses infant care, the developmental needs of children and adolescents, the many caregiving issues in adulthood and mid-life, and finally end-of-life care and bereavement. Key coverage includes: Examining caregiving issues across a developmental perspective. Caregiving from infancy through early childhood through end of life. Mid-life and multigenerational bonds and responsibilities. Caregiver identity in older adults. Family caregiving at the end of life. This must-have volume offers a wealth of insights and ideas for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students across the caregiving fields, including psychology, social work, public health, geriatrics and gerontology, and medicine as well as public and education policy makers.

Family members provide the majority of care for individuals with disabilities in the United States. Recognition is growing that family caregiving deserves and may require societal support, and evidence-based practices have been established for reducing stress associated with caregiving. Despite the substantial research literature on family support that has developed, researchers, advocates and professionals have often worked in separate categorical domains such as family support for caregiving for the frail elderly, for individuals with mental illness, or for people with development disabilities. Family Support and Family Caregiving across Disabilities addresses this significant limitation through cross-categorical and lifespan analyses of family support and family caregiving from the perspectives of theory and conceptual frameworks, empirical research, and frameworks and recommendations for improvements in public policy. The book also examines children with disabilities, children with autism, adults with schizophrenia, and individuals with cancer across the life cycle. This book was published as a two-part special issue in the Journal of Family Social Work.

A concluding chapter draws together implications for future directions in practice, policy and research.
