AnnotationCare attendant schemes and "extended" home help are just two of the responses made by social services authorities to the need to care for increasing numbers of older and disabled people in their own homes. This article reflects on a study of two such domiciliary support schemes in Hampshire. The author's full report, 'Against the tide: approaches to the domiciliary support of frail elderly people in Hampshire', is published as SSRIU report no 11. (RH).
