AnnotationThis discussion paper was subsequently published as Chapter 16 in: Geographical perspectives on the elderly; edited by A M Warnes (Wiley, 1982). It is concerned with the geographical distributions of a group of services used by older people which are provided by local authority social services departments (SSDs): residential homes, domestic help, day centres, and meals on wheels. Considerable variations in levels of provision and recurrent spending are demonstrated. (RH).
