AnnotationAs an ever-increasing proportion of the US population reaches old age, is the concept of community-based care working, and how does the professional community respond to the needs of confused older people? The author uses participant observation of one midle-sized US community to analyse 14 treatment settings, from mental hospitals and nursing homes, to the fire department and corner cafeteria. (RH).
