Looking at regulation and financing in four European countries.
The HRB evidence review examined Approaches to the regulation and financing of formal home care services in four European countries. These were Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and Scotland.
The report describes and compares published information on formal home care with respect to:
- National standards.
- Staff and provider accreditation.
- Financing of regulation.
- Eligibility and needs assessment.
- Financing of home care services.
The review is part of a process to determine what type of homecare scheme is best for Ireland, in relation to both regulation and funding.
