Services for supporting family carers of elderly people in europe : characteristics, coverage and usage (EUROFAMCARE)

Objective

EUROFAMCARE will provide a European review of the situation of family carers of elderly people in relation to the existence, familiarity, availability, use and acceptability of supporting services. Six countries and the WHO Europe will form a trans-European core group. A pan-European wide integration of expertise will be achieved by National Background Reports from 23 European countries, integrated into a Pan-European Background Report showing the state of family carers and support services in 2003/2004. National Surveys in the six core group countries will analyse 6, 000 family care situations in different regional sites. Socio-economic evaluation calculates the economic consequences from individual quality of life to European-wide politico-economic implications. EUROFAMCARE will push a change management process at various policy levels to promote social policies towards family carers of the elderly.
