By Oliver Valins

Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR), December 31, 2002

This book is a detailed examination of the services that are provided to older people by the UK Jewish community. The book begins by recounting the history of social care within Britain followed by an overview of Jewish welfare provision in the United Kingdom. The book highlights how Jewish communal providers are considered among the best in the U.K. but at the same time deal with very high expectations and demanding government legislation. The book concludes by providing recommendations on what communities and individuals should think about in terms of priorities and willingness to pay for services for older people and what kind of resources and connections can be used to improve social service provisions.
