Abstract
A Long-term Care Program was introduced throughout British Columbia, Canada, on January 1, 1978. This comprehensive community-based program emphasizes home care. A longitudinal study was started of all persons (N = 3518) admitted to the program that year in two health districts, one urban and one semirural. An examination of the relationship between acute-care hospitalization and long-term care (LTC) involved determining (1) the number of admissions (N = 364) to LTC directly from acute-care settings versus the number (N = 1287) entering directly from the community, (2) the number of LTC persons who were hospitalized at least once in the first 12 months after admission to LTC, and (3) the outcomes of these hospitalizations. Persons from the urban area who entered the LTC Program from an acute-care hospital were much more likely to be institutionalized than were those from the semirural area. In the LTC facility group, 388 persons (19.9 per cent) experienced at least one acute-care hospitalization during the first year of the program. More than 50 per cent of those transferred to an acute-care hospital for the first time returned to the same location and level of care afterward; 14 per cent died. These descriptive analyses may be of interest to health-care planners and to those who care for the LTC elderly either at home or in a facility.

Abstract
To compare adherence to Swedish guidelines for diabetes care between elderly people living at home with or without home health care, and residents of nursing homes.
Medical records of 277 elderly people aged 80 and older, with known diabetes in a Swedish municipality, were monitored using quality indicators to evaluate processes and outcomes.
Monitoring, in accordance to diabetes guidelines, of HbA1c, lipids, blood pressure and foot examinations was lower among residents of nursing homes (p

Abstract
Six hundred and nineteen persons from the population study of 70-year-olds "The intervention study of the elderly in Göteborg" (IVEG) were examined. They were interviewed in their home environment concerning their ability to manage activities of daily living (ADL), and the definition "ADL-reduction" is based on seven of these ADL-measurements. One third of the 70-year-old population had reduced ADL-capability, some only slightly. Joint disorders, paresis and congestive heart failure were the most common problems among the ADL-reduced subjects. Forty-three per cent of the ADL-reduced subjects (19% of total) received help with their personal care and/or housekeeping. One third had technical aid, mostly quite simple and inexpensive. Half were provided with new technical aids. The need for technical aids and home help service was noted and intervention undertaken as and when necessary. The needs were correlated to physical activity and performance in functional tests. The results do not illustrate the occurrence of handicap but are aimed at illustrating the special needs that elderly people may have in their normal surroundings.

Abstract
This research concerns mobile system adoption and use among home care nurses at one home care organization in Finland. The aim was to get insights on somewhat poor adoption and utilization of a mobile system they use. 12 nurses were interviewed and observed at home visit to gain insights on how the system could better facilitate their work routines. A requirement analysis was produced based on the results and is to be discussed with the management of the organization and the service provider.
