AnnotationAn older person's needs rarely falls into one category labelled `housing', `health' or `personal', which is is why a joint approach to care by local housing and social services departments and health authorities is important. This study, based on a survey of a number of local authorities in England, was undertaken to assess the nature and extent of existing co-ordination. The report reviews the obstacles to collaboration between services, and looks at some models of good practice, in particular joint care coordination teams, joint responsibility officers, and joint finance.
