Caring and Disability in Long-Stay Institutions
The paper investigates the empirical relationship between the dependency characteristics of elderly residents and the amount of care provided by health care professionals in a selected number of long-stay institutions in Ireland. The results confirm a positive, if not always significant, re;ationship between care provision and increasing dependency on a Guttman, activities of daily living-based scale of disability. The relationship between care provision and increasing severity on other dimensions of disability is not always positive. Type of institution also influences the provision of care hours by category of dependency.
