Abstract

An increasing amount of attention is being paid to the question of how we continue to finance care. With concerns about the ageing population and the cost of long-term care, to both the individual and state, we must rethink the way we deal with chronic illness and its disabling consequences. This includes consideration of both public and private financing systems and the appropriate balance between public and private responsibilities. Researchers from the Personal Social Services Research Unit, the University of East Anglia, the Nuffield Trust and the University of Barcelona have been exploring how private long-term care insurance can supplement state systems, with the UK as a case study. The research project, funded by the AXA Research Fund, began in April 2010.
