AnnotationThis article reports on survey work relating to the development of services for older people in 35 local authorities, in which the Social Work Service was involved. Social service departments have approached the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 in a variety of ways, making comparisons between authorities difficult. They have developed a greater awareness of older people's needs, but have experienced difficulties in providing as good a service as they would wish, because of staff shortages, pressures from other demands and the need to deal with crises.
