Community care in Taiwan: mere talk, no policy

Authors:
CHOU Yueh-Ching, KROGER Teppo
Journal article citation:
Social Work in Mental Health, 2(2/3), 2004, pp.139-155.
Publisher:

Place of publication:
Philadelphia, USA

This article explores the policy definitions and the funder roles of central and local governments in community care in Taiwan. The notion of community care has been adopted in Taiwan following the model of Hong Kong but the main question of the article is whether this has resulted in actual service provisions at the community level, forming an alternative to institutional care. The data has been collected from several sources: policy documents, official statistics, surveys, general reports, funding provision reports, and empirical studies. The results show that neither central nor local authorities are seriously involved in caring for elderly people or persons with disabilities in Taiwan's communities. In Taiwan, community care for these groups of people still means, in practice, informal care provided by female family members without any support from public policies.

Sustaining disabled people in the community: does supported housing offer a real choice?

Author:
WOOD Heather
Journal article citation:
Practice: Social Work in Action, 16(3), September 2004, pp.185-196.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis

Sustaining people with disabilities in the community has been the thrust of social policy since the 1980s. This has led to the development of a variety of approaches to the provision of supported housing, all with a common goal of offering disabled people greater choice and control over their lives. Considers a small research study exploring the extent to which current service provision offers disabled people greater choice and control over available housing solutions, focused on the views of clients accessing housing services from a specialist charitable trust which had undergone a fundamental shift in housing provision for disabled people, moving away from residential care towards more community-based supported-living schemes. Identifies areas where improvements appear to have been made, but also identifies weaknesses in current types of provision and limitations in the housing choices individuals may have available..

Living with paraplegia: tensions and contradictions

Authors:
O'CONNOR Deborah L., YOUNG Jenny M., SAUL Megan Johnston
Journal article citation:
Health and Social Work, 29(3), August 2004, pp.207-218.
Publisher:
Oxford University Press

In-depth, personal interviews were conducted with 7 individuals with paraplegia who had been living back in the community for less than 2 years. Qualitative analysis suggests the transitional process revolved around their struggle to reposition themselves in a holistic way that reflects the injury while moving beyond it. Four interrelated challenges textured the experience: maintaining an identity beyond the medical, contending with the stigma of difference, addressing the invisible work of day-to-day living, and balancing independence and dependence. Implications for practice are discussed.
