The effect of public subsidies for formal care on the care provision for disabled elderly people in France
AbstractThis paper aims to assess the effect of the APA on the care received by disabled elderly people living in the community. Using data from the French Handicap Santé Ménage Survey, we propose an empirical analysis using the propensity score matching method. Our results suggest that the use of publicly funded formal care partially substitutes for privately funded formal care and informal care, depending on the disability level and the informal care resources, but improve the support disabled elderly people receive to assist them in performing the main activities of daily living.
