Community Care and Older People
Providing a concise review of the demographic context underpinning the development of community care for older people, and a critical review of community care in post-war Britain, this textbook discuss the current data and research regarding service provision and the costs and effectiveness of such services. The author integrates available data about the use of different types of service, and considers the implications of the 1993 policy and demographic change on the provision of community care in the future, comparing data relating to Britain with that of other developed countries, especially in Europe.
