It is the purpose of this Thesis to describe and to analyse the medical and social conditions of the elderly sick in Fife, both in urban and rural areas; to examine in the light of the evidence adduced, some of the major problems and prevailing assumptions regarding the care of the elderly; and finally, against this background, to discuss the implications for the future development of our services for old people.
