Le soutien familial aux personnes âgées dépendantes : Analyses micro-économétriques des comportements individuels et familiaux de prise en charge
With the population ageing, the expected increase in the long term care demand questions the role our societies want to entrust to family in the care provision for disabled elderly people. We use a micro-econometric framework to study individual and family caregiving behaviours. From a public policy perspective, three mains findings emerge from the analysis proposed. First, the identification of family interactions in individual caregiving decisions highlights the necessity to reconsider the idea of an inexorable decline in family support. Second, the decrease in labour supply induced by the care provision beyond a certain level points out the limits of a public policy aimed at both extending the work lives of seniors and encouraging informal care for disabled elderly people. Finally, the use au publicly funded formal care is associated with a rather modest decline in family support.
