Abstract

L'avancée en âge s'accompagne d'une augmentation des risques de perte d'autonomie, avec pour corollaire l'accroissement des situations de dépendance, nécessitant une aide. Du fait de leur surnombre, parce qu'elles vivent plus longtemps que les hommes et sont plus souvent qu'eux en situation de dépendance aux grands âges, les femmes sont aujourd'hui les principales bénéficiaires de l'aide à domicile. Elles sont également les principales pourvoyeuses d'aide au sein de la famille : ce sont essentiellement elles qui se mobilisent pour aider leurs parents et conjoint. Dans les décennies à venir, la population âgée va s'accroître et les hommes y seront plus nombreux parmi les dépendants et les aidants potentiels. Observera-t-on alors un rééquilibrage des rôles familiaux, et de quel type ? Le développement de l'aide professionnelle à domicile ? Une prise en charge individuelle ou collective de ces coûts ?
