Recipients of long‐term care
Abstract:The number of people receiving long‐term care (LTC) in OECD countries is rising, mainly due to population ageing and the growing number of elderly dependent persons, as well as the development of new programmes and services in several countries. In response to most people's preference to receive LTC services at home, an important trend in many OECD countries over the past decade has been the implementation of different types of programmes to support home‐based care.
