ABOUT THIS BOOK
Adult social care in Britain has faced many crises over recent decades. Revelations of horrific abuse, the collapse of major private home care providers, abject failures of inspection and regulation, and uncertainty over how long-term care of older people should be funded have all given rise to serious public concern. The contributors to this volume debate the current state of adult social care and offer a historical overview of services and examine recent developments in the field. They conclude with a look at the prospects for adult social care and social work in an era of seemingly never-ending austerity measures.
