Seven themes have been chosen for this session, concerned with program design for the care of the aged, all of which involve difficult problems, and include the following:
  1. 1.

    Which is better for the users, to provide them with direct services or to give them cash or vouchers?

  2. 2.

    What method should be adopted to determine the recipients of the services?

  3. 3.

    To whom should the care manager offer their services and what should they do?
