Needs for continuing care of demented people: a model for estimating needs

  • John P. Wattis (a1), Janet Hobson (a2) and George Barker (a3)
Extract

The way in which residential and other forms of continuing care have developed in the United Kingdom has been reviewed (Lewis & Wattis, 1988). It has been a story of unclear policy and confusion, especially in respect of people with dementia.

Traditionally, their care was shared between social services Part III (including EMI – for the ‘elderly mentally infirm’) homes and NHS psychogeriatric and geriatric beds.
