Long-term care in the Danish health care system

Long-term care in the Danish health care system

Health Care Management 3(1): 149-156

Because of a declining birth rate and increased life expectancy, emphasis in the Danish health care system has shifted from child care to care of the elderly. The author examines the social, medical, governmental, and financial implications of this shift, focusing on an experimental scheme in the rural community of Skaevinge. By shifting from institutional to community-based services, the Skaevinge project created a new interdisciplinary structure that turned a nursing home into apartments and introduced 24-hour services for the entire community.
