AnnotationThis book looks at growth, meaning and effectiveness of community care policies in the UK in the previous thirty years. The authors examine the assumptions which underlie official policymaking, and assess the effects of community care policies in the early 1980s on the family and the state, by means of case studies. Further chapters consider the relative costs of community and residential care, and the relationship between formal and informal caring agents. The authors indicate future trends in community care, and propose ways in which alternatives to residential and family care may be developed.
