Demographic and epidemiological changes mean that frail older
people have come to be seen as an expensive problem for health care
systems. The challenge for professionals and policy-makers is to
find ways to respond to the coming crisis by delivering
high-quality care in the home. This collection offers a critical
analysis of home care policy and practice. It focuses on how
high-quality care is provided and the practices and policies that
support this. It offers case studies (both policy- and
practice-oriented empirical studies) from countries that share a
