Abstract

With the growth in the numbers and proportion of older people in the population the funding and incentive structures around long-term care are of international concern. A study of the circumstances of self-funded admissions to care homes allowed the comparison of self-funders with publicly-funded admissions to care homes in the UK, the influences on self-funders in their decision to move into a care home and resources on which they were able to draw. These findings contribute to our understanding of the impact of current policy on self-funders and our thinking about the way that future policy and practice changes could improve the way we use society’s resources in the provision of long-term care
