­rganisations representing older people in the political process. Currently, the service models of care used in disability and ageing programmes are different across many European countries (OECD, 2013). Attitudes to choice, autonomy and empowerment vary and there is no evidence of convergence in respect of an ageing disability interface in regard to public policymaking. Disability programmes typically incorporate concepts of independence, autonomy, selfdirection and empowerment. In contrast, ageing programmes tend to follow the medical model more closely, with health and

have relevance and applicability to health services (Arksey and O’Malley, 2005). We know that people who use mental health services, carers and professionals have different views about effective care, with professionals often prioritising a clinical model of care, and service users emphasising a social model of care (Rose, 2003). Similarly, they may also have different research priorities. Service users want research that makes a noticeable difference to their care experiences, both personally and generally (Beresford, 2005). More importantly, they want research

a result of childhood illness and disability. In a more recent study, Normand and Revill (2010) undertook a costs and outcomes analysis of alternative models of care for families caring for a child aged four years or less who suffers from severe intellectual and physical developmental delay, as a result of either being born with or having acquired a brain injury. The report was undertaken for the Jack and Jill Foundation (JJF), was based on a questionnaire completed by 28 families and considered direct and indirect costs borne by the families who received JJF home

, recent international and country-specific policy documents outlining the future of mental health provision have also offered an historical analysis to explain the current configuration of services and their limitations.2 What has often been missing from these discussions is any mention of paid staff and their contribution to providing and transforming different models of care. We argue that this important omission is explained by both the traditional powerlessness of rank-and-file caregivers and the fragmented state of the historiography. The history of care has had

From security to ‘care’, vulnerability to resistance

. Also in May 2021, NHS England’s clinical director for mental health Tim Kendall announced that he had written to all NHS mental health trusts in England to advise them to review a so-called ‘model-of-care’ known as Serenity Integrated Mentoring. First developed by High Intensity Network, a private company founded by an ex-police officer, SIM had been rapidly adopted by almost half of all mental health

the room to catch a new person and then pirouette around another. Each needed to be minutely connected with other leaders to ensure that all remained safe, at the same time as watching closely for her or his particular partner and partners they would soon be assisting. The exercise built a particular (not of course completely unproblematic – of which, more later) model of care. First, there was an intimate connection to the direct partner as the person quietly led him or her around the space. Second, as the touch became slighter, there was the experience of the

on what Shellee Colen ( 1995 ) has called stratified reproduction; that is, a system in which labour and social rights are granted or denied based on gender, class, race, and legal status. This is sustained by a border regime (Fassin 2011 ) – both in geo-political and conceptual terms – that reinforces, through the legal system, a model of care that is feminised, precarious, and stratified (Pérez-Orozco 2006 , see also Pine and Haukanes, Chapter 1 , this volume). Drawing on recent literature on citizenship and border regulation (Fassin 2011

disability nurses’ to engage with current practices and terminology, it is worth noting that in the past nurses were given the same stigmatising titles as their patients; thus mental subnormality or mental handicap nurse. In the pre-NHS era it was more common to see staff, especially on the male wards of institutions, designated as attendants rather than nurses. Although changing terminology was, in part, driven by changing working practices, the workforce undeniably remained trapped in an institutional model of care. This problem was not restricted to the UK. Most

and Despret. Haraway, for instance, argues that: ‘Caring means becoming subject to the unsettling obligation of curiosity, which requires knowing more at the end of the day than at the beginning’. 26 This approach is presented as a radically non-anthropocentric model of care, wherein ethical obligations are generated through humans becoming attuned to non-human animals’ needs, learning what matters to them, and responding to these obligations. For this form of relational care, the critical question is how space can
