Health in ageing societies: long-term care and the role of the family
|Health in ageing societies: long-term care and the role of the family
|Lehrende||Prof. Dr. Iris Kesternich|
Inhalt und Lernziele:
Population aging has greatly increased the share of elderly individuals in the population and the number of people needing long-term care. In the United States, the share of population aged 85 and older is predicted to double by 2050. In Germany the share of the population at retirement age has already increased by one third over the last two decades, from 15% in 1995 to 21% in 2015 and it is expected to increase further to 28% by 2035.
When we think about health of aging societies, the family plays an important role. First, due to changes in family structures and rising female labour supply, an ever-larger share of the elderly is in institutionalized care. Policy interventions or changes are needed in the supply and financing of long-term care to alleviate bottlenecks in this market. Second, the marital and family situation determines to a significant extent one’s late life health and care opportunities.
In this seminar, we will address the role of the family in determining health as well as policies for long-term care markets.
