Families and Intergenerational solidarity

Key actors in providing care to those who are in need of it are the State, family and the community. While the State normally ensures social security, health and social services (formal care), the family and community take on themselves the provision of informal care.

According to estimates in European countries, 80 per cent of the long-term care is provided by informal carers, and informal caregivers constitute from 10 to 25 per cent of the total population in Europe.
