The increasing and continually changing needs of the older generation are issues which have occupied professionals from various fields in recent years. For social work, demographical changes pose a significant interest. Older people have moved from being a marginal concern in the middle of the 20th century, to one of central importance for social work in this century. The specific nature of social work lies in transversal understanding of older people, their needs, and in the assertion of the user as a partner in the helping process. In this course, we explore how social work is tackling this challenge.
