Notes
  • This report discusses the impact of care allowances on women care-givers. These programmes, involving some payment for care in informal care settings, have recently been introduced in several OECD Member countries. While their primary goal has been to help older persons in need of care, their consequences for the persons providing care also deserve to be analysed.

Ceci rend aussi l'analyse très complexe. L'objectif principal de cette étude est de répondre à la question: quel est l'impact pour les aidants féminins de divers modèles d'allocation de soins pour les personnes âgées dépendantes? Ces allocations de soins compensatrices ont été principalement mises en ...
