Uunder the 7th EU Research Framework Programme (http://www.ancien-longtermcare.eu/). It runs for a 46 month period and involves 20 partners from EU member states. The project principally concerns the future of long-term care (LTC) for the elderly in Europe. The project members compiled EU-wide data from 22 countries and published country reports describing the existing LTC systems. According to our baseline projection, in the next years the number of disabled elderly will increase by almost 60 % in Germany and may double in The Netherlands, while Spain and Poland could even experience a 125 % increase. These growing numbers of elderly in need of LTC will translate in increased demand for long term care. Furthermore, ANCIEN projections of the future LTC capacity, both in terms of the formal care workforce and the numbers of available informal caregivers, indicate a growing gap between supply and demand. ANCIEN analysis will enable policymakers of member states to assess the potential care gap in their countries in order to plan the future organization and financing of their national LTC systems. In addition, the analysis of the factors that determine the performance of national LTC systems can be used to assist policymakers in adapting their national LTC systems.
