2012 (English)In: Home care across Europe: current structure and future challenges / [ed] Genet, Nadine; Boerma, Wienke; Kroneman, Madelon; Hutchinson, Allen; Saltman, Richard B., European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies , 2012, 1, p. 55-70Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

For every person over the age of 65 in today’s European Union, there are four people of working age but, by 2050, there will only be two. Demand for long-term care, of which home care forms a significant part, will inevitably increase in the decades to come. Despite the importance of the issue, however, up-to-date and comparative information on home care in Europe is lacking. This book attempts to fill some of that gap by examining current European policy on home care services and strategies. Home care across Europe probes a wide range of topics including the links between social services and health-care systems, the prevailing funding mechanisms, how service providers are paid, the impact of governmental regulation, and the complex roles played by informal caregivers. Drawing on a set of Europe-wide case studies (available in a second, online volume), the study provides comparable descriptive information on many aspects of the organization, financing and provision of home care across the continent. It is a text that will help frame the coming debate about how best to serve elderly citizens as European populations age.
