To meet the social care and healthcare demands of the aging Swedish population, the Swedish government decided to identify the care needs of the most fragile elderly. This case study examines the Most Fragile Elderly Project and its results. The case study begins with an interview with Dr. Eva Nilsson Bågenholm, the national coordinator for elder care. The second part of the case study provides a background of the project. The third part includes a detailed breakdown of outcomes in five focus areas: preventive care, dementia care, end of life care, medications, and care coordination.
