There is currently a debate about the future funding of long-term care for old people.
Welcome as it is, there is a risk that the focus on finance will obscure equally important questions about who should provide the care and what models of care should be chosen.
Many years of research and innovation in the care of elderly have shown that the effective and efficient provision of simple care services is very difficult to achieve.
Social care is at once everyday and peculiarly complex.
Some essential characteristics of social care are described which make it unlikely that a solution to the funding problem will improve either the allocation or the outcomes of long-term care.
