The Long-term Care in the Slovak Republic

  • Project period: 2021 - 2022
  • Category: Applied Research


Long-term care (LTC) includes the broad array of services provided to disabled persons – particularly the elderly because of chronic illness or disability - at home, in nursing homes, and in assisted-living facilities. The integration of social and healthcare services in Slovakia has been continually discussed over the past 20 years. The numerous intentions for preparing a legal framework for long-term care were rejected due to the lack of political will and lack of cooperation between stakeholders; however, there have been some small adjustments made in recent years.
