Eldercare Policy Implications on the Time Use Patterns and Quality of Life of the Elderly and Elder Caregivers in Europe, UK, US, and Japan

Project description

Elderly care policy for the future

The world’s rapidly ageing population, particularly in the industrial world, will result in considerable demographic change over the next 50 years. It is estimated that people aged 65 years and older will represent a significant proportion of the total population. As such, governments are searching for solutions to ensure citizens’ welfare. Although many countries apply different strategies, their overall efficacy and sustainability remain uncertain. The EU-funded AgeingTimeUse project will analyse the results of various policies and elderly care strategies in Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. The project aims to specify the main typologies in the three countries, the results of the long-term care policies and formal care services, and the demographic background of the manifestation of these typologies.
