Resumen

With people living longer, the need for affordable care of high quality to support Europe’s population increases. Over the last ten years there has been an expansion of the private sector in terms of the number of care homes and the places they provide. This increase takes place in a context of decrease or very slow growth in the services provided in public care homes. This report examines services in the public and private sectors, how they differ in the services they provide in terms of the quality, accessibility and efficiency of services. As private provision increases, costs to users are likely to become a more significant barrier issue unless there is an increase in public benefits to subsidise use. There are also some differences in the location of different types of care homes, with private care homes more likely to be found in affluent urban areas. Differences in the types of residents are influenced by the profitability of the services they require. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Residencias para personas mayores europeas: proveedores públicos, con ánimo de lucro y sin ánimo de lucro

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Este informe ofrece una visión general de cómo ha cambiado el servicio de residencias para personas mayores tanto públicas como privadas (con o sin ánimo de lucro) en la última década. Aunque se ha producido un cambio considerable en el tamaño y la propiedad de las residencias para personas mayores, no hay datos armonizados a nivel de la Unión Europea desglosados por tipo de propiedad o finalidad económica de los proveedores de servicios. El informe reúne los datos disponibles y también proporciona información de estudios, evaluaciones y encuestas sobre las diferencias entre la accesibilidad, la calidad y la eficacia de los servicios prestados en residencias públicas y privadas para personas mayores. La información se recopiló principalmente mediante un estudio bibliográfico y mediante la Red de corresponsales europeos de Eurofound, que proporcionó datos de oficinas nacionales de estadística y estudios.
