CESifo Venice Summer Institute 2012 "The Economics of Long-Term Care"
In most OECD countries the era of long-term care (LTC) has arrived. More than two out of five people aged 65 or older report having some type of functional limitation (sensory, physical, mental, self-care disability, or difficulty leaving home). A few years from now, the ageing trend will accelerate, fueled by the large “baby-boomer” generation, and the relative importance of people aged 65+ will more than double by 2050. This CESifo Venice Summer Institute Workshop will welcome theoretical and empirical contributions dealing with the economics of LTC. Specific topics include (but are not limited to) the role and design of social LTC insurance, the operation and failures of private LTC insurance markets, provision of LTC within the family (motivation, potential of crowding out by alternative sources of provision), trends in the demand of LTC services, health economics aspects of LTC, etc.
