Sažetak

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.

    Domovi za starije i nemoćne Europljane: državni, profitni i neprofitni pružatelji usluge

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    U ovom su izvješću prikazane promjene u pružanju usluga skrbi u državnim i privatnim (profitnim i neprofitnim) domovima za starije i nemoćne osobe tijekom prošlog desetljeća. Iako su se dogodile značajne promjene u pogledu veličine domova za starije i nemoćne osobe te njihova vlasništva, na razini EU-a ne postoje ujednačeni podatci prema vlasništvu i/ili ekonomskoj svrsi pružatelja usluge. U izvješću su navedeni dostupni podatci i rezultati istraživanja, procjena i anketa o razlikama u dostupnosti, kvaliteti i učinkovitosti usluga koje se pružaju u državnim i privatnim domovima za starije i nemoćne osobe. Većina podataka prikupljena je pregledom literature i uz pomoć Mreže europskih dopisnika Europske zaklade za poboljšanje životnih i radnih uvjeta, koja je omogućila pristup podatcima državnih zavoda za statistiku i podatcima iz istraživanja.
