Modernisation of older people's services (Completed 2010)

Elderly womanAs part of the modernisation of older people's services in Birmingham, the City Council has commissioned a three-year evaluation of the outcome of the closure of local authority care homes / day centres on older people.


HSMC's study will look at the impact of assessment and resettlement on outcomes for the older people concerned and at the process of assessment in Phase 1 of the modernisation, with a view to developing lessons around good practice for Phase 2.
