European Parliament Interest Group on Carers on "Family vs. state responsibility in long-term care provision - The feasibility of one model" 6 May 2015 Report

The Interest Group on Carers and Eurocarers met on the 6th May and addressed family vs. state responsibility for long-term care across the EU.

Despite the huge variety of approaches, challenges and levels of progress, all Member States are engaged in political discussions on this topic. While the EU cannot legislate in this area, it can facilitate discussion and exchange of good practice and experience and the area of long term care seems to lend itself well for this type of informal cooperation.

A comprehensive meeting report is available here.
