AnnotationInformation on registered private homes for older people was extracted from a national 1 in 5 survey of such accommodation carried out by the Department of Health and Social Security (DHSS), supplemented by a survey by the Institute of Biometry and Community Medicine (IBCM). A comparison of these homes by size is made. It is found that larger homes tend to: care for smaller proportions of older residents; admit the vast majority of residents from mental hospitals; admit fewer people living in their own homes; and admit a greater proportion of more dependent residents.
