Abstract
  • The Government is planning controversial changes to the funding of long term care for older people. This important book explores the past and future of policy in this area and reflects the changing balance between the state's and the individual's responsibilities to cover risks associated with ill health and disabilities. Is current policy understood and supported by the public? Should the Government restate and perhaps reform the social compact that exists between the public and the Government? These are just some of the questions posed in this collection of essays.
