Projections of Use and Supply of Long-Term Care in Europe: Policy Implications
This policy brief presents results of projections of use and supply of long-term care for older persons in four representative countries: Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and Poland. The projections show that between 2010 and 2060, the numbers of users of residential care, formal home care and informal care are projected to increase in all countries, but at different rates. The results also indicate that if current patterns of care use and supply prevail, the supply of informal and formal care is likely to fall behind demand.
