An international comparison of long-term care funding and outcomes: insights for the social care green paper

Incisive Health | August 2018 | An international comparison of long-term care funding and outcomes: insights for the social care green paper

A new report from Incisive Heath in partnership with Age UK makes clear that governments can take very different approaches to organising and funding help for older people, and that indeed they do. No doubt to the disappointment of policymakers, the authors did not find a ‘magic bullet’ solution – every country is facing some problems. Moreover, cultural preferences also partially determine the ‘best’ approach for different societies.

How does England compare ask the authors? Rather badly, is the honest answer. We arguably get the worst of many of the different elements the report looks at, partly because no government is yet to really grip the issues (Source: Incisive Health).
