Ageing and broader socio-economic developments are challenging European societies in manifold ways, not least in how they are dealing with the need for long-term care. In the growing body of comparative long-term care literature, Central and South Eastern Europe has so far been widely neglected. This book covers eight countries in this region, namely Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia. The book provides an overview of common and diverse demographic and socio-economic challenges, whilst analysing the current situation in the organisation, provision and financing of long-term care and the roles of family, civil society, private sector and the state. It also discusses relevant trends and prospects in a broader comparative perspective.
