Supporting INclusive Development of Community-based Long-term CARE Services through Multi-stakeholder Participatory Approaches (InCARE)

European countries face the formidable challenge of providing adequate, affordable and sustainable support to their ageing populations. Socially innovative approaches are required to manage the inherent complexity of LTC systems and respond to such challenges in a flexible but coordinated fashion at all governance levels.

Mapping Promising Social Services and Policy Measures to Support the Independent Living of Older People: A Compendium of Good Practices on Community-based Services for Older People (IL_OlderPeople)

Following the impact of deinstitutionalisation efforts in the disability or childcare sector, there has been already some progress in long-term care to move from an institutional type of solutions towards integrated models, embedded in the community. However, unlike in other sectors, there is not enough knowledge nor evidence when it comes to ensuring independent living of older people and where such good practices exist. Additionally, there is limited understanding on what constitutes a good practice (criteria, dimensions, etc.) and how to ensure transferability.

Distributional Impact of Asset Contributions to Residential Care in Austria (PFLEGEREGRESS)

The asset contribution to residential care in Austria (Pflegeregress) has been abolished in January 2018, increasing the scope for higher use of social assistance and higher demand for residential care for older people. There is currently no empirical evidence on the distributional effect of this measure across the income and wealth distribution. There has also been limited evidence- based discussion about funding alternatives to the abolished asset contribution and their distributional effects, respectively.

VIGOUR – Evidence-based Guidance to Scale-up Integrated Care in Europe

VIGOUR ist ein von der Europäischen Union im Rahmenprogramm H2020 gefördertes multinationales Versorgungsprojekt (Grant Agreement Nummer 826640). Ziel dieser Initiative ist es, Modelle der integrierten Gesundheitsversorgung - vor allem für ältere Menschen - in den 15 beteiligten europäischen Regionen sichtbar und für andere Regionen zugänglich zu machen. Im Projekt werden stufenweise Analysen der IST-Situation der Versorgung alter Menschen in diesen Regionen durchgeführt und, darauf aufbauend, Optimierungen der Abläufe in der Versorgung durchgeführt.
