Abstract

This is the second of two reports of a two-part study. This volume reports on the longitudinal study that was started in autumn 1995, and continued unitl 1999, some time after implementation of the reforms introduced in 1993 by the NHS and Community Care Act 1990, which had extended local authorities' responsibilities for assessing and funding residents. This part of the study focused on the characteristics of newly admitted long-stay publicly-funded residents, and their outcomes and costs over the following three- and-a-half years. The survey covered approximately 2,500 residents in 18 local authorities. Information was collected on: their personal characteristics, health, dependency and charges at the time of admission; their circumstances prior to admission; their subsequent moves and survival, health and dependency at 6, 18, 30 and 42 months after admission. The companion report, Care Homes for Older People: Volume 1 Facilities, Residents and Costs (Netten et al., 2001a) describes the cross-sectional survey of homes and residents.
