TitleLong-term care in developed nations : a brief overview
Category Documents & Reports
Author(s) Gibson, Mary Jo; Gregory, Steven R.; Pandya, Sheel M.
Publisher Name AARP Public Policy Institute
Publication Date October 2003
Abstract In this AARP Public Policy Institute Issue Paper, Mary Jo Gibson, Steven R. Gregory and Sheel M. Pandya provide a brief overview of many key long-term care policy trends in developed nations, such as encouraging home and community services, providing support for family caregivers, and insuring individuals against the high costs of long-term care. While there are many innovative services in the United States, this overview concentrates on examples from other countries, mostly European, that have much "older" populations. With the exception of Japan, the world's 25 oldest countries are all in Europe; the United States ranks 29th.
