AnnotationAn introductory paper outlines the needs, services and policy background, and suggests a new approach to care based on the concept of `case management' for older people living at home suffering from dementia. Studies of home support schemes are presented: the original Newham and Ipswich schemes; the ACCESS (Age Concern Confused Elderly Support Service) scheme in Ipswich; the Cambridge community resource team for the elderly; and the Gateshead community care scheme. Discussions and workshops focused on further examples of innovative approaches to service provision, evidence of what proved effective, and examples of problems encountered. (RH).
