|Outline of Final Research Achievements
The study is aimed to compare Japanese and Swedish debutants who become eligible first time for using the long-term care services. Primary questions of interest concern the level of disability among these debutants and the LTC services they receive. Further, it is of interest to analyze how their disability level changes over time and how well this is reflected in the provision of services. Finally, it is of interest to discuss the dynamics and sustainability of elderly care systems of the two countries. For the analysis was used longitudinal administrative data from a Japanese municipality and data collected in the Swedish National Study on Ageing and Care. Dependency level among the debutants in both countries were comparable, but provided care services differed a great deal. Among survivors the average number of dependencies almost doubled in five years. In both countries provision of community care given dependency increased over time and institutional care was reduced.
