Because most severely and chronically ill people will receive care outside of hospitals or nursing homes, there is increasing recognition that the integration of community-based care, including home care, must be an objective of health policy. Contributors explore the structure of community-based and home care, along with the ways in which services are provided at one or all of the following levels: central government, state or provincial government, local government, and the private sector.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"J, Rogers Hollingsworth and Ellen Jane Hollingsworth have edited a volume of readings that finds a niche in the current health reform literature by discussing the needs of three special populations: the frail elderly, homebound persons with chronic diseases, and the chronically mentally ill. The readings are comparative in that they contrast the situation in the United States with that in Great Britain. The message of the book is that future health policies must view community-based care, especially home care, as an integral feature of health services in modern states. This means sufficient funding and coordination of services to adequately support those in need."--William C. Cockerham, Contemporary Sociology
