Securing Long-term Care in the EU: Some Key Issues

Abstract : Long-term care (LTC) concerns people who depend on help to carry out daily activities. It is delivered informally by families - mainly spouses, daughters and step-daughters - and to a lesser extent formally by professional care assistants. Formal care is given at home or in an institution (such as care centers and nursing homes).The governments of most EU member states are involved in some way in the provision or financing of long-term care services. However, the extent and nature of their involvement differs widely across countries.
