This bookMoreAcross the member states of the European Union, common problems and challenges have arisen related to the accessibility, quality, and financial sustainability of long-term healthcare services, which represent a new social and medical risk. This book compares national policies in Norway, Germany, and the Netherlands and these countries’ approaches to issues such as old-age insurance, home-help programs, and mental healthcare. The contributions look at different paths of policy development, identify problems faced by public and private parties, and ultimately discuss possible solutions.
