Abstract

In the context of population aging, our article focuses on needs for new services to facilitate aging well in France. Using original data on the customers of a not-for-profit insurance company (?mutuelle?), we focus on seven types of services (related to interpersonal relationships, and health and healthcare, among others) and explore the role of a number of factors in the needs for these services. Altruism, solidarity, and expectations regarding future disability emerge as significant predictors of these needs.
