Evaluating the effect of care programs for elderly people with dementia on caregiver’s well-being

  • Gramain, Agnès
  • Malavolti, Laëtitia

This paper provides an econometric evaluation of the impact of two innovative care programs for elderly people with dementia (day-care centers and group-living) on the well-being of the primary caregiver of patients. For this evaluation, we use data from a survey conducted in six European countries in 1998. The results show that, after adjusting for selection bias, day care centers have a positive impact for a speci¯c part of the population. They also reveal a rationing mechanism in the access to group-living.
