Feasibility Study of Use of Direct Payments for Informal Care

Feasibility Study of Use of Direct Payments for Informal Care

This project is a SCPHRP seed-funded research project. Seed-funding research was part of the SCPHRP remit during the period of 2008 ’€“ 2012. 


University of Aberdeen

Principle investigator:

Professor Anne Ludbrook

As the size of the older population increases, maintaining people in their own homes is an important policy objective in terms of both the quality of life of older people and the costs of their care.  Informal (non professional) carers are an important source of care provision but relatively little is known about how the supply of such care might respond to alternative payment systems.  This feasibility study will use a structured questionnaire survey of households, with at least one individual aged 65 years or over, carers or potential carers to identify preferences for and responses to alternative payment systems.
