Consuming care and social services: comparisons between Swedish-born older people and older people born outside Sweden

Authors:
ALBERTSSON Marie, et al
Journal article citation:
Practice: Social Work in Action, 16(2), June 2004, pp.99-110.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis

Compared consumption of public care and social service in Vaxjo municipality among people aged 55 and over born outside Sweden and a corresponding group of Swedish-born older people. Results showed significant differences: less use of mobility allowances, meals-on-wheels and safety alarms among people born outside Sweden, and a higher number of sole relatives as caregivers. Those born outside Sweden who did receive domestic assistance and personal care services also received more extensive help (more that 14 hours a week). The majority (57.6%) were aged 65-79; only 32.3% were 80 plus. Further study is needed to find explanations for these differences at the level of structure, organisation and actors.

The quality and range of services available to older people still reflects chance as much as genuine choice. Older people need a more broadly based political voice than the current pensioner lobby. Wherever they turn for assessment, treatment and support they should be viewed as valuable consumers.

Long-term care for older people and EU Law: the position in England and Scotland

Authors:
HERVEY Tamara, et al
Journal article citation:
Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law, 34(1), March 2012, pp.105-124.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis
Place of publication:
Philadelphia, USA

The implications of EU law for UK healthcare provision have been tracked by the literature, and covered in EU legislation. However, long-term care for older people involves not only healthcare but also social care. This article examined to what extent, if at all, is the current legal position on long-term care for older people in England and Scotland potentially inconsistent with the UK's obligations in EU law? Drawing on empirical data gathered in early 2010 for a European Commission report, this article considers in detail how EU law might apply to the social care aspects of long-term care for older people in England and Scotland. It concludes that EU law is an important element of the long-term care policy context. Implications for practice are discussed.
