AnnotationThis book, first published in 1986, describes the Kent Community Care Project and its evaluation. The Personal Social Services Research Unit (PSSRU) approach to community care decentralises to field workers the responsibility, authority and accountability for performing 'core tasks of case management', providing them with the opportunity, control over a budget, incentives and knowledge to mobilise and use resources to achieve more equitable and efficient outcomes for clients and carers. Chapters cover: community care as an approach to long-term care; the design and context of the study; key workers and case management; responding to need; supporting carers; developing community support; the outcome and costs of care; and cost-effectiveness.
