Abstract

The aging of Western societies together with social changes places the question of how best to finance and deliver long-term care (LTC) services at the forefront of policy debates. The Congressional Budget Office noted that expenditures for nursing homes, home health care and other long-term treatment accounted for 8.5% of all U.S. health care spending.
