AnnotationThis report describes the organisation of short-stay family placement schemes for older people, discusses some of the issues arising from different methods of organisation, and identifies some of the factors to be taken into account when evaluating schemes. It concludes that such schemes are, for the majority of those involved, a valued addition to the services already available.
