Dependent Persons in Spain: estimation of the number and costs for their care

  • Irene Albarran

Abstract

This research tries to assess the dependents and Long Term Care costs for next
years in Spain. To do this, it has been taken account data from the Survey on
Disabilities, Impairments and Health Status and population forecasts estimated
by INE, the legal rules passed between 2006 and 2008, and some former
studies about individual costs of long term care. The key point in this study is
the concept of cost per point of scale. Once calculated, forecasts till 2050 have been estimated. Finally, the results have been compared with those included in
the Long Term Care Act.
