The Impact of the Crisis on Cash-for-Care Schemes for Dependent Elderly
A Comparative study of France, Italy and England
By Athina-Eleni Georgantzi
Brussels, June 2010

Although not a traditional social risk, dependency and the need for long-term care (LTC) have gained an important place in the social security arena: demographic ageing and changes in societal structures count among the main reasons for this shift.
The EU countries, acknowledging the importance of the LTC sector in the medium run, have engaged in debates on the trade-off between social insurance, private insurance and responsibilities of families, searching in particular for sustainable and affordable forms of financing the contingency of dependency.
The stress on long-term care provision faced by many European States was challenged once again due to the financial and economic crisis. This paper wishes to examine what was the impact of the crisis on long-term care schemes for older people. At a time when long-term care was already overstretched and underfunded how did EU States set their priorities?
What happened to the planned reforms? Under which criteria did they cut down or continue with the policies already in place? Is there a common trend on how governments reacted under the economic pressure?
