0 Reviews
The first book to bring together and review the findings of research into short-term care services for a range of user groups, this book addresses the question of short-term care from many perspectives. Particular attention is paid to the views of those in direct receipt of the service, while the issues of costings and quality, and the current research on provision to particular groups including disabled children and people with dementia, are also examined.
