Ongoing survey on Long-Term Care: have your say!

The InCARE survey aims to understand how people view care for older people with support needs and how they assess long-term care systems. It is available in 8 languages: Albanian, Dutch, English,  French, German, Italian, Macedonian, Romanian, Spanish. 

As of now, we have more than 3000 responses, promising an interesting analysis. Many participants shared their personal experiences, illustrating the acute need to redesign long-term care provision:

“I would urgently need support as far as my parents are concerned.”

(Woman 52, Austria)

“It was very difficult to find quality help even if we paid.”

(Woman, 62, France)

“It was terrible to witness just how much our older people are let down by lack of creative, adequate, and  in my opinion humane, care options.”

(Woman, 46, Ireland)

You can help ensure as many people as possible are given the opportunity to express their views:

This should take no more than 20 minutes of your time!

More responses would also allow a more refined approach to the differences between countries.

Findings from this study will be used to raise awareness of the challenges faced by older people with care needs and their families, to advocate for policies that can support them, and to help design better support systems for older people, their families, and communities.

Ensuring all those who need it have access to high-quality, affordable long-term care, in particular home-care and community-based services, is a major challenge throughout Europe and at the global level. Policy debates are ongoing on how to shape long-term care systems in the future: it is essential that people are given a voice and this survey will contribute to it.

EUROCARERS is the European network representing informal carers and their organisations, irrespective of their age or the particular health and care needs of the person they are caring for. Eurocarers brings together carers’ organisations as well as relevant universities & research institutes – a unique combination that enables evidence-based advocacy.  We believe that carers’ know-how and needs are worth listening to and people should have the right to choose freely whether they want to be a carer, and to what extent they want to be involved in caring.
