NASW offers a wide variety of resources relevant to gerontological social work. Download this flyer to learn of resources available to NASW members and the public.

In the summer of 2015, NASW celebrates many events that benefit older adults in the United States: the sixth White House Conference on Aging; the 50th anniversary of Medicaid, Medicare, and the Older Americans Act; and the 80th anniversary of Social Security. NASW presents this guide to enhance media coverage of these issues and of other topics related to aging.

This book not only provides guidance for caregivers of older adults, but also examines the experiences of older caregivers caring for younger adults, such as older parents caring for adult children with intellectual or psychiatric conditions and grandparents raising grandchildren.

As a member of the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations (LCAO), NASW contributed to the development of these advocacy principles.

The brochure, developed in collaboration with NASW, is part of the Joint Commission’s Speak Up™ initiative, which encourages consumers to play an active role in their health care.

This report describes the activities of two NASW delegations to Cuba and summarizes information learned about that country’s social services in health care, child welfare, and aging.

This four-volume set of evidence-based recommendations provides guidance to social work and other practitioners caring for individuals and families affected by dementia in assisted living, nursing home, and home care settings, as well as at the end of life.
