The assistance given to older people to help with the essential activities of their daily lives is one of the key policy responsibilities undergoing an expansion of public converage. Given the extended life-spans of populations across Europe, this pertinent issue is now increasingly in the loop of political reform in all countries, including the UK, Spain, Germany and Sweden. This book offers the most up-to-date analysis of the features and developments of long-term care in Europe. It focuses on countries that have been comparatively less studied, for example, Eastern Europe, Italy, France and Spain, and makes comparisons with reform practices in Germany, the UK, Netherlands and Sweden. Each chapter focuses on a key question in the policy debate in each country and offers a description and analysis of each system.
