posted on 2023-06-07, 19:08 authored by Henglien ChenHenglien Chen
Quality of life is one of the main concerns in long-term care amongst ageing populations in many countries. This problem is historically unique and increases the demand for research material. This examination forms a part of PhD research to understand and evaluate current long-term care systems of social inclusion support at levels of macro, meso and micro welfare. The engagement with social inclusion was carried out in response to the fact that most service users in the research support the view that been support in social well-being would improve their quality of life. The research was designed to include the views and experiences of all the actors in the three examples of contrasting welfare systems from the EU and East Asia (England, the Netherlands and Taiwan) concerning the demand and supply of care resources and the impact of policy upon the provision of social inclusion in long-term care services. These aims will be achieved through a comparison between three examples of contrasting welfare systems from the EU and East Asia. A total 177 interviews have conducted on three levels in each country: national, county and municipal.
