Baby Boomers of Color

Columbia University Press

Embracing a view of boomers of color as possessing assets and strengths that can be incorporated into practice opens up a new world for social workers, along with numerous corresponding challenges. This chapter outlines the implications and challenges for social work in meeting the projected needs of baby boomers of color over the next decade, and doing so while tapping their strengths and assets through an embrace of democratic participatory principles associated with social justice. It presents recommendations for policy, practice, and research that attempt to identify and support the potential key contributions of baby boomers of color. A special section on nursing homes addresses the potential role they can play in being ready for future residents of color.

Keywords:   baby boomers of color, baby boom generation, social work practice, social workers, social justice, nursing homes
