Project start date: 2018
Project end date: 2018
Funding institution: Generalitat Valenciana
This document analyzes the effects of the increasing longevity of the Valencian population on the demand for health and dependency services, which is a major future challenge the public sector must bear in mind when designing public policy. Improvements in life expectancy and quality of life are one of the main achievements of the progress made by Valencian society over the last century. But the needs associated with the growing number of elderly and dependent people require higher spending on public services for these groups. The report studies the consequences of the increase in longevity and proposes a number of measures to protect the quality of life of elderly and dependent people.
