Abstract

O fenômeno do crescimento da expectativa de vida, acompanhado pelo envelhecimento da população, é uma tendência mundial que vem marcando a dinâmica demográfica das sociedades atuais. Neste contexto, a preocupação com o tema da dependência se faz cada vez mais presente. Garantir as condições necessárias à manutenção da qualidade de vida das pessoas idosas e, em especial, dos idosos em situação de dependência funcional vem adquirindo relevância inédita na agenda pública. Este texto tem como objetivo apresentar o mapeamento de algumas experiências internacionais e uma análise comparativa da proteção para idosos dependentes em sete países selecionados (Alemanha, Espanha, Estados Unidos, França, Japão, Reino Unido e Suécia), identificando as diferentes abordagens do tema da dependência, assim como as principais características das políticas públicas voltadas para este público. Na perspectiva de subsidiar discussões relativas à viabilidade de implantação de um sistema de proteção para idosos dependentes no Brasil, o texto apresenta ainda um balanço dos pontos de destaque no debate internacional sobre o tema. Improvement in life expectancy and population ageing are worldwide phenomena that distinguish the demographic dynamics of nowadays societies. Therefore functional dependency and the quality of life of the frail elderly have grown into major issues in public agenda. This text aims to present and compare general aspects of the international experience in the field of long term care to frail elderly people. From the analysis of seven different cases (Germany, Spain, United States, France, Japan, United Kingdom and Sweden), we aim to identify both the specific approaches to functional dependency and the most relevant characteristics of the policies designed for this group. Aiming to contribute to the incipient discussion of the matter in Brazil, we also summarize the most important elements in the international debate on personal, domestic and medical long term care for frail elderly people.
