Astrid provided personal care for two weeks after the stay in hospital, until her mother was admitted to a nursing home because of an acute gastric infection. This meant that Astrid changed her caregiving activity yet again by becoming the caregiver for a relative in a nursing home. In Mrs Nygaard’s case, the primary caregiver is relatively easy to identify. The different caregiving activities, and the order and duration of these, can also be clearly delimited and are easy to classify. The caregiving career took a different course for Mrs Bakkane’s primary caregiver.

Up to the end of the 1980s, the caregiving system functioned formally as a rather uncoordinated organization. Nevertheless, in practice this endearing chaos was relatively well coordinated, primarily because it was small and transparent and because there was considerable stability among the key personnel for the various services and measures. Subsequent development had the primary goal of making it more streamlined and costeffective, leading to comprehensive changes on a number of levels.
