This book presents an up-to-date comparative analysis of domiciliary care policies for the older populations of Denmark, the United States and Germany with a particular focus on similarities and differences between these care regimes. The authors extend their discussions to include issues of welfare state classification, the changing role of the state as the provider of social care services, the recommodification of the care labour force and the increased emphasis placed on both informal care-giving and consumer power. The book makes an important contribution to the debate about the future care of older people and provides an informative and insightful analysis of the provision of publicly funded domiciliary care services from a cross-national perspective. Home Care for Ageing Populations will be of particular interest to academics working in the fields of social policy, social care, gerontology and public/employment policy and will prove a useful source for researchers conducting comparative analysis of social care systems. It will also be of interest to those within the community services / social care arena and public servants responsible for the coordination and delivery of homecare systems, as well as social workers, general practitioners, occupational therapists, and a host of other specialist staff working with older people.
