ESTRANCA (Emergence and Significance of Transnational Long-Term Care Arrangements)

Title ESTRANCA (Emergence and Significance of Transnational Long-Term Care Arrangements)
Description

With the number of Europeans aged 80 and over rapidly increasing, new solutions are needed for the provision of long-term care (LTC) for the elderly in almost all EU countries. This project investigates the emergence of transnational care arrangements and their potential as solutions to problems experienced by policymakers and older people and their families in two countries with different LTC regimes: Germany and the Netherlands.

A central hypothesis is that different LTC regimes provide different incentives and opportunities for transnational arrangements. The research focusses on how ‘care packages’ are actively constructed by individuals and families and how these micro-level packages are related to (changes in) national policies and macro-level ‘care mixes’.
