Demand for long term care in residential settings has dropped by 7 per cent since its peak in 1993, as local authorities have sought to care for people in their own homes. However, the cost of homecare packages, combined with difficulties in recruiting homecare workers at typical pay rates, has caused the growth of homecare to stall. Laing & Buisson published its annual review of the long term sector – _Care of Elderly People Market Survey 2000_ – at the end of August. _Homecare Professional_ will review the report in the October issue.
