What family support will dependent elders have in 2030? European projections
If health conditions remain the same as today's, the population of dependent persons aged 75 and over should increase by 70% in Europe between now and 2030.

The situations of disabled elders will continue to differ according to sex, with men having a considerably greater chance than women of having a partner with them.
