InCARE has launched a third national factsheet, describing attitudes, experiences and expectations on long-term care in North Macedonia. We found that:
- Availability and affordability remain major barriers in accessing formal care services, particularly for low income earners and rural-living individuals
- Many feel obligated to provide care for their loved ones, despite negative impacts on their career and health, warranting increased financial protection and recognition of social rights for informal carers, as well as expanded formal care options
- Strong preferences for formal care options and less responsibility for families demonstrate a need for expansion of community care services and an increased role of the state in providing and financing care
