As life expectancy pushes into the late 70s for men and well into the 80s for women, ever more people want help in order to be able to live their lives to the full for as long as possible. How will demographic and labour market trends affect the supply of family, friends and care workers available to the elderly? Will public finances be threatened by the future costs of care? What should be the balance between private responsibility and public support in care giving? This book addresses these and other important questions.
