Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The research that the book presents, born from the collaboration between the Relational Social Work Research Center of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart and the CISL Emilia-Romagna National Pensioners Federation, began in the first period of the health emergency, when the need arose to question the social consequences of what was happening in the homes for the elderly. What effects did the interruption of contact with the outside have on the guests? And how did the operators not lose the relational sense of care work? The authors respond to these and other questions by exposing the design and methodology of the research and the data obtained from the interviews with residents, operators and family members; the results are then commented on by the union, which illustrates its supporting role and reflects, in the light of recent dramatic experiences, on possible developments in welfare services. The attention to current events and the empirical and planning perspective make the volume a reading of great interest for social workers and researchers, but also for anyone who experiences first hand the complexities of care for the elderly.
