The community care reforms of the 1990s were shaped in part by experiences in the 1980s. Whilst many problems emerged in that period, some important lessons were also gained from the Care in the Community Demonstration Programme. Each of 28 demonstration projects helped long-stay hospital residents move to the community. In many ways, the projects tested modes of working which were later to become national policy. "Care in the Community: Challenge and Demonstration" describes these projects, the people who made the momentous move from hospital, and the community care that was established. The book reports the wide-ranging evaluation of the Demonstration Programme, including accounts of client outcomes, costs, service systems, financing, joint working, staffing and case management.
