Care has changed from being predominantly unpaid to being commodified and performed primarily by strangers. Markets for elderly care expand as a response to unmet care needs (or states outsourcing), and care workers or professional carers can either be employed in for-profit or non-profit organizations with presumably different organizational logics. In most welfare states, elderly care is becoming part of a booming market, and even in the more social-democratic welfare states, the markets for elderly care are expanding. Here state strategies inspired by New Public Management (NPM) are increasingly creating care markets instead of the former state-provided care. State responsibility for care is retained. But the state no more ‘produces’ the care, as the care services are now outsourced to private or semi-private providers, or to the families themselves in the form of subsidies. Commodification and capitalism also change, transforming their demands for what counts as ‘good work’.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
