Abstract

The concepts of chaos and complexity theory can be used to describe change in policy systems. This article does so for social care policy in England from 1981. The author shows the imprecise nature of policy action and the instabilities and fluctuations of social care markets. The growing importance of individualism and independence for older people will increasingly influence the future social care policy system.
