AnnotationIn 1974, the Department of Health and Social Security (DHSS) was considering carrying out a national sample survey into the needs of older people as a client group. Watson and Albrow's survey was selected as a model for study: the questionnaire was simple, clear and relevant. This report focuses on social isolation, ability to cope with domestic tasks, sources of support, and the provision of services for which social service departments (SSDs) are responsible. (RH).
