Description:
Recent publications on services for the elderly in Ireland frequently stress the importance of improved co-ordination in the delivery of these services. However, this is the first study to focus exclusively on coordinating services for the elderly at the local level in this country. The study, which evaluates the experience of two pilot projects, has its origins in the recommendations of National Council companion reports published in 1985. They were Housing of the Elderly in Ireland and Institutional Care of the Elderly in Ireland. Good housing is central to the provision of good quality care in the community. Many elderly people are vulnerable to ill health andlor institutional referral as a result of poor housing conditions. Hence, coordination between health boards, local authorities and voluntary bodies is a necessary component of community care.
