Institutional Care of the Elderly: A Comparison of the Cities of New York, London and Mannheim

Optimal provision of care for the elderly, no longer capable of totally independent living, remains a major challenge. For many elderly, some form of institutional care will always be necessary. Each country has already developed a system of such care and a cross-national comparison of systems may illuminate possibilities of institutional care and the advantages and disadvantages of the alternatives.
