AgeingTimeUse, Horizon 2020 ERC

Within the next 50 years, older adults will represent a substantial proportion of the population in most industrialised societies. Demographic trends indicate that countries will have to face tough social welfare decisions regarding the development of further strategies on how to ensure safe and dignified ageing of its growing older population. Countries introduce a variety of strategies in their policies of support and quality of life for their older adults. There is a range of long-term care policies as well as formal care provision services available in the industrialised countries. However, the efficacy and sustainability of these strategies remain unclear.

This research analyses the time use in the UK, US, and Japan, with particular focus on time use of caregivers. Using sequence analysis and multilevel models with access to supercomputers at the University of Oxford, the project aims to define the main typologies arising in the different countries, the effects of long-term care policy interventions and formal care services in these countries, and the demographic and resource-based antecedents of why such patterns and typologies arise. It also analyses the strain in the paid and unpaid work among family caregivers.

The project is funded by ERC Horizon 2020, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowship.
