Facing rapidly ageing populations many countries face a rising demand for long-term care, care or medical support to help elderly cope with their impairments. This increasing demand for care pressures LTC systems in many countries. To safeguard stability of LTC systems, various options to reduce LTC expenditures are currently considered. Stimulating informal care provision and ageing-in-place are often identified as two potential solutions in this regard. This thesis focuses on two questions related to these presumed solutions by studying the health impact of providing informal care and the determinants and impact of a nursing home admission.
