This article gives a brief description of management in the care of older persons and persons with disabilities in Sweden. The focus is on how the management profession has developed and what competence is required to reach the goal of providing good quality social care. Current practice challenges and realities indicate that one of the difficulties faced by managers is to provide older persons and persons with disabilities with the possibility of participating in a social context despite a disability or illness. Examples are given of how to secure the individual's rights on a local, regional and national level.
