dc.descriptionThe demographic profile of the population in our Board's area is changing with increasing numbers of people living into old age. Whilst most people will have an active and healthy old age, there are a sizeable minority of old persons who are likely to require support and care, as they grow older. Research indicates that many older persons are in need of some care and some are in need significant levels of care up to and including residential care. From the late sixties there has been a marked increase in the level of affluence in the country as a whole. This however has been accompanied by significant social change such as a decline in the pattern of extended families and the decrease in the incidence of volunteerism and relative carers. This change has increased the number of older . persons presenting for services, changed the mix and type of client; has raised expectations on quality of service; and has led to move away from volunteer / relative carer provision of service to health service provision.en_GB
