Positioning turnaround services for older people: discussion paper

Paper that advocates a model for targeting health and social care provision in older old age called ‘Turnaround’.

Turnaround is advocated in the context of older population changes which make it imperative that authorities limit the need for high cost provision such as residential care and intensive home care support.

The approach would aim to develop provision that lessens the likelihood of admission to hospital or care, or demand for high intensity community provision, through a holistic approach which focuses on improvement, recovery and rehabilitation.
