  Bringing older adults and young children together will make the care system better for everyone. Combining daycare for children and elderly people benefits all generations Editions. This book, along with its sister title, Who Cares about Disabled People? has become something of a phenomenon on the Internet, and I was surprised to find it on my library's shelves.

In latest social care guidance, NICE calls for care to be integrated so that better, more person-centred care can be provided for the growing number of older people with social care needs and multiple long-term conditions.. Many long-term conditions such as dementia, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer are linked with age. Since the population is ageing, the number of people with long-term.

This ‘Making a start in Integrated Care for Older Persons Guide’ represents an opportunity to give substance and more detail to the 10 Step Framework. It is informed both by evidence of ‘what works’ from both theory and the experience of implementation. As this document is a ‘Getting Started’ guide it. This focus on integrated care to meet the needs of older people with complex needs is thus set within a context of change, where countries are seeking new ways of focusing expenditure on approaches that reduce the pressures on expensive services, make best use of scarce resources and also improve the quality of life for older people.
