Abstract

This paper explores three issues intrinsic to assessment and care management arrangements in older people's services: eligibility criteria, assessment, and monitoring and review. It includes data from a national study of care management arrangements, and these findings are placed in the context of policy initiatives at the inception of community care and those arising more recently from the Government's modernisation agenda. The data presented highlight both the nature and extent of changes required to meet specified Government objectives in these key areas in order to improve services for vulnerable older people.
