I recommend that everybody with an interest in ELC reads "Compassionate Cities" by Prof. Allan Kellehear.
Prf. Kellehear argues that communities need to take an holistic view of what is needed for ELC. It is impossible to provide a brief summary but he is of the opinion that all parts of the community, not just health and social care have a part to play.
As a "starter for ten" it would be useful to get health and social care working together. There is a large gap caused by the perception that you need to be in hospital if you are dying and the fact that research has shown that the majority of people wish to die at home.
