Discusses several home care issues and argues that demographic, social and economic differences between women and men must be taken into consideration when developing home care policy. It concerns itself with users of home care as well as with providers, both paid and unpaid. It seeks to raise awareness of gender as a variable in developing and implementing public policy about home care and proposes that policy options be subjected to a systematic analysis of gender-based differences.
