Abstract

Ensuring adequate care provision to older adults has become one of the key policy issues in Korea. However, these policy efforts have been chiefly propelled by drastic population aging and concern over negative effects on the public expenditure, therefore tend to exclude the voice of the persons directly involved, namely older adults with care needs and their family carers. This lack of attention is in need of in depth discussion, as it is related to developing an effective ELTCI system that fulfills actual needs of older adults and their family carers. Because care provision to older adults is likely to occur in a continuum of care interaction in a family setting, when diagnosing care needs and relevant services needed, families’ views should be included for developing better, effective long-term care provision.
