Care homes for older Europeans: Public, private and not-for-profit providers - Executive summary

PDF version Printer-friendly version

This report provides an overview of how public and private (both for-profit and non-profit) provision of care homes for older people has changed over the last decade. Even though there has been considerable change in the size and ownership of care homes, there are no EU-wide harmonised data disaggregated by type of ownership and/or the economic purpose of service providers. The report draws together the available data and also provides information from studies, evaluations and surveys about the differences between the accessibility, quality and efficiency of services provided in public and private care homes for older people. The information was gathered mainly through a literature review and by Eurofound’s Network of European Correspondents, which provided data from national statistical offices and studies.
