This book explores the development of helping professions with older people. It provides a theoretical excursion drawing from French philosophy to examine how social work as a helping profession has changed its form and shape with older people in order to reinvent itself. The book attempts to explore the matrix of theory, policy and practice in exploring the past to the present to the future in exploring new developments and the latest research on helping professions with regard to the elderly.
