Transforming Community Care: A Distorted Vision?

Transforming Community Care: A Distorted Vision?


The engine of community care is the professional practice of care management. However, its implementation in the managerialist 1990s frustrated the flexible implementation of community care. Gorman and Postle use their detailed research to show powerfully how a generation of social workers have been disillusioned by care management and they use their own practice experience with older people to demonstrate the continuing possibilities for social work to empower service users and practitioners to develop care management in the future.
