The project examines the typology of care in the community in Slovenia, how  care is provided in individual communities and what  the quality of such care is. The main aim of the project is to find out how the quality of care for the elderly people is ensured in individual community types (according to various combinations of actors and services) and whether there are differences in this regard.
