    acute and long-term care services for the elderly and disabled in need of long-term care. Many of these individuals are eligible for both public programs. Reform efforts that simultaneously address Medicare and Medicaid acute and long-term care needs for the long-term care population could produce more efficient and higher quality care. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) offers practical, research-based tools and resources to help a variety of health care organizations, providers, and others make care safer in all health care settings. These tools help staff in hospitals, emergency departments, long-term care.

    The family has traditionally played an important role in providing care at home. However, ageing societies and the increase in female labour force participation are putting pressure on governments to take a more active role. Several countries have already done so. Germany, for example, introduced a universal long-term care insurance programme in , making subsidies available to both. A clinical management system will assist enrollees in obtaining long-term supports. The State will assess long-term care services use and ascribe a dollar amount for procurement of these services. Enrollees will be assisted by brokers or another source in managing the long-term care capitation amount (via a voucher or an agency).

      This work examines the relation between the characteristics of the national Long Term Care (LTC) sectors and the families’ involvement in care for older people. A growing literature has employed the notion of defamilization and incorporated the gender dimension into the comparative examination of care model. Indeed this book contains a detailed account of the policies required across a broad field, from economic sustainability and extending working lives, to healthy ageing, technological innovation, long term care and political citizenship, for the successful adaptation to .

People with long-term health problems are a large and increasing proportion of the population of the United States. The elderly are not the only users and potential clients of long-term care. Such people are of all ages and include not only the chronically ill and the infirm but also the physically impaired, the mentally ill, and the mentally retarded.

Long-term care is an increasingly important issue in many contemporary welfare states around the globe given ageing populations. This ground-breaking book provides detailed case studies of 11 EU-member states’ welfare regimes within Europe to show how welfare states organize, structures and deliver long-term care and whether there is a social investment perspective in the delivery of long.

Care of elderly and geriatric patients in EU countries (DVSG) also published a policy document on discharge management, defining the objective of the joint efforts. ‘The objective is to enable each patient to receive the type of care that best takes his wishes and his requirement for help into consideration, whilst ensuring his right of.

This book provides a comprehensive overview on the long-term care systems in 12 EU member states and Norway. Focusing on the legal background and its main principles, it includes a comparative analysis which highlights the principal dissimilarities between European long term care benefits, but at the same time also a variety of features in common.

Long-term care is a specific policy area of growing importance in social policy. Chapter 17 by Rodrigues addresses challenges and problems in evaluating long-term care. A very central issue is the quality of life in long-term care – as well as a precise definition of what long-term care actually is.

Measuring effectiveness is also very difficult given that those in need of long-term care. Among the EU Member States, this share varied even more than the share for retailers and other providers of medical goods: the highest share for residential long-term care facilities was % in the Netherlands, while in Croatia and Bulgaria the share was below % (no data available for Slovakia).

Long-term care (LTC) in the United States requires serious and creative attention. It is largely off the political radar screen in any meaningful way, and public rhetoric about it seems off the point.

The year marks a historic opportunity to build on current needs and positive models to build better long-term care.

The book explores increasing public support given to family care work (in the past, the family would take care of the elderly or infirm) and increasing growth and recognition of a extended social care market (by which care has shifted from a moral obligation based on family reciprocity to a paid, professional activity).

In each country long-term care policy develops from a specific background of history, politics, resources, culture, community standards, emphasis on personal and family responsibility, and the role of government in social welfare.

From this perspective, the U.S. policies are distinctly “American,” just as the policies in Norway are. Long-term care coverage in each country is still marked by its past: with a hybrid of Beveridgean1 and Bismarckian2 systems, as well as the conservative traditions of some countries, and family traditions of Southern European countries.

– In the Bismarckian model, long-term care protection, like any social insurance, depends on labor and social. Yet much still remains to be done to enhance evidence-based measurement and improvement of quality of long-term care services across EU and OECD countries.

This book offers evidence and examples of useful experiences to help policy makers, providers and experts measure and improve the quality of long-term care services.This chapter provides an overview of long term care (LTC) policies in Europe and other OECD countries in order to contextualize the findings presented in the other chapters of the book.This was summarized in a widely distributed report: Long-Term Care Laws in Five Developed Countries (WHO/NMH/CCL/).
