Long Term Care in the UK – The Need for Change

Published: 22 Aug 2016

Key Challenges Today

Changing demographics will continue to have a significant impact on the long term care (LTC) market in the United Kingdom. The ageing population will have a major impact on the organisation and delivery of healthcare, and there will be a focus on chronic diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, and osteoporosis, rather than acute illnesses. Although a high proportion of older adults are helped by friends and family, many pay for their care whilst some are partly or fully covered by the government through local funding. LTC can range from a low level of care including cleaning and shopping support to high intensity care for older adults within care homes. The key trend is that the demand for care will continue to increase because of increasing life expectancy and ageing.
