Table of contents

About this book


The role of residential care in welfare provision has been debated for many years. Recent emphasis on care in the community has led to closure of hospitals and residential homes on a massive scale. Drawing together contributions from some key names in the field, this provocative and stimulating book questions the reasons for the rejection of this form of care and offers a reassessment of its role in community care for the twenty-first century.
