Subject: Self-neglect in older adults : the issues of social work intervention
This research project aims to explore how social workers intervene with older adults who neglect themselves. The objectives are to clarify the concept of self-neglect; to document effective interventions and resources mobilized to address the issues raised by social intervention; to formulate avenues of reflection and of actions for effective and favourable intervention practices; to propose thought on the possible inclusion of self-neglect situations in the social response to prevention of mistreatment.
