“The book provides a comprehensive description of contemporary LTC policies in different countries and regions of Europe, and a systematic exploration of the institutional conditions and socio-economic impacts of the changing LTC policies. … The book’s publication is timely and highly recommended for all those working in the field of LTC, whether they be academics, students or policymakers.” (Ellen Kuhlmann, Social Policy & Administration, Vol. 47 (7), December, 2013)
“The purpose is to educate society about the conflict of the social and political aspects of long-term care and the barriers that need to be addressed. These noteworthy objectives need to be strongly considered by long-term care experts. Long-term care practitioners are the intended audience, and the book has compiled much research. … The side-by-side comparisons to other healthcare systems are phenomenal. The helpful glossary and appendixes are true assets. This is a unique book that covers a topic that few others address.” (Katherine L. Aguilar, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)
