Description:
One of the pilot projects was located in Dun Laoghaire Borough, a predominantly urban area, which forms part of the Eastern Health Board community care area. The other pilot project was located in South Tipperary, a predominantly rural area which forms most of the South Eastern Health Board Tipperary S. R. community care area. The pilot projects were initiated jointly by the health authorities and local authorities in the two project areas in accordance with Terms of Reference drawn up by the National Council for the Aged and operated for a four-year period, 1987 to 1991. The pilot projects centred on the establishment of formal arrangements for the exchange of expertise, joint planning and joint action at local authority and community care area level in order to improve the delivery of services at local level to elderly persons. The design of the projects provided for the establishment of a steering committee in each project area with a broad planning brief covering all aspects of services for the elderly in their catchment area. The interagency, inter-professional and inter-sectoral composition of the steering committees was designed to reflect this broad agenda (4.2).
