About this book

These essays by no means cover all areas of interest in long-term care programs, but they offer new insights (and intriguing questions for future research) about how differently policies in this important area can be carried out in different countries.

About the authors

Paul Midford is Professor and Director of the Japan Program at the Norwegian University for Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim.

Reviews

"A fascinating read for anyone interested in how seemingly very different societies (Japan and Norway) organize their services for older people. From this a good deal can be learnt." - Gerdt Sundstrom, Professor Emeritus in Gerontology, Jönköping University, Sweden, and consultant with The Swedish Federation of Retired Persons
