Long-Term Care Coordination for Older People at Home - Exploring the Role of Independent Organisations in Care Coordination for Older People and their Carers

The purpose of this study is to further explore and document the role of organisations independent of local authorities in the provision of care coordination for older people and their carers, and the implications this may have for service commissioning and service providers.  It will also seek to identify some of the factors which influence local authorities' capacity to expand the range of services available.
