Social care and social exclusion : a comparative study of older people's care in Europe.

Blackman, T. and Brodhurst, S. and Convery, J., eds. (2001) 'Social care and social exclusion : a comparative study of older people's care in Europe.', London: Palgrave Macmillan.


This text explores the diversity of social care provision for older people in six contrasting European countries. Using a common descriptive and analytical framework, the book examines how the organization and delivery of care are shaped by the wider welfare regime. This is discussed at the level of both practice and policy, including detailed case studies illustrating key features of social care in each country. The authors conclude by showing how the concept of social exclusion can inform service development.
