Description

As in many other European countries, the sustainability of the long-term care system is a key issue in the Dutch policy debate. In order to shed light on this issue this book compares the way elderly persons are supported in sixteen European countries. Based on the latest SHARE data it provides an assessment of long-term care institutions, individual care needs and their underlying risk factors, the availability of network care, and the paid and nonpaid care people actually receive.
