The editors are all at the University of Sheffield. Tony Warnes is a professor of Social Gerontology and during 1995-2000 was Chair of the British Society of Gerontology. Lorna Warren is a lecturer in the Department of Sociological Studies and has been carrying out research on and with older people for seventeen years. Mike Nolan is a professor of Gerontological Nursing and is involved in several international comparative studies of formal and informal care-giving.

Social and demographic changes have led to traditional areas of welfare being transformed. The contributors to this book take a critical look at the current situation and assess the implications for future practice. They debate the assumptions and values underlying established welfare programmes and consider the case for change.
