Changing services for older people: the neighbourhood support units innovation
What are the issues underpinning the trend towards innovation in the community care of older people? What is the nature of the innovation: how is it experienced by older people and their carers? "Changing services for older people" sets out to address these pressing questions. It presents the findings of a major research project evaluating the outcomes of the Neighbourhood Support Units innovation in Sheffield. Key issues raised include the goal to create more flexible 'tailor made' services and the promotion of user-and carer-responsive forms of provision, shifts which are occurring in many other European countries.
