Economic evaluation of informal care
Keynote speaker: Prof. Ulrike Schneider, Head of the Department of Socioeconomics, Full Professor of Economic and Social Policy at Vienna University of Economics and Business.
Informal care is a significant source of support for adults with a limited ability to engage in activities of daily living. Policy makers often consider informal care as a low-cost mode of providing help to dependent older people that is essential for containing public spending on long-term care. Thus, sustaining informal care is a clear policy priority.
However, the empirical literature points to substantial private and public cost of informal care. Providing care adds to other roles and callings in daily life and has shown to adversely affect informal carers’ quality of life, health and financial well-being. Against this backdrop, the lecture will present valuation methods for informal care.
