This chapter examines partnership as a strategy for supporting vulnerable older people who wish to continue living in their own homes. It addresses the contrasting pressures that have been brought to bear in establishing a range of policy measures aimed at reducing reliance on long-term residential care and outlines the ways in which notions of partnership have been applied to working with older people. It identifies strategies for achieving inclusive partnerships that focus on serving the interests of older people and stresses the need for institutional learning to ensure that the main beneficiaries of interagency initiatives are, indeed, service users and carers.

Keywords:   partnership, older people, policy measures, residential care, institutional learning, interagency initiatives
