InCARE has launched a second national factsheet, describing Attitudes, experiences and expectations on long-term care in Spain, available in English and Spanish.
We found that:
- Limited availability and high costs are commonly cited as barriers in access to care in Spain, suggesting a need for increasing financial protection and improved planning of care delivery
- Spanish respondents have very low trust that the long-term care system will be able to respond to their future care needs, especially regarding the capacity and accessibility of community-based care solutions
- Attitudes and preferences for care arrangements are shifting away from the traditional familialistic grounding of the Spanish care system, and towards a stronger role of the State and of professional services in long-term care provision
Our open-access Factsheets series will continue to grow over the next months, with the publication of accessible summaries of data collected in North Macedonia, Romania and Malta!
