In Strategies of Care, Barbara Da Roit traces the changes in the elderly care systems of Italy and the Netherlands since the early 1990s, drawing attention to the advantages and disadvantages of these two very different models. She examines the formal care system of the Dutch, and reveals how this system—despite strong policy pressures—has remained relatively stable, while the Italian system has undergone major transitions despite minimal policy intervention. Based on a wealth of data and extensive interviews with both caregivers and patients, Strategies of Care will appeal to anyone interested in the future of European health care debates.
