Household structures of elderly in the past: a case study of two Dutch communities in the periode 1920-1940

Onderzoeksoutput: BookProfessional

Samenvatting

The continuing aging of the population sparked off a public discussion on the extent of state care of elderly people. A historical evaluation of the Dutch system of family care is an essential part in the above discussion, especially regarding options like self-aid and 'mantelzorg'. Using population registers, household stutters of elderly people in the periode 1920-1940 were reconstructed for two different regions in the Netherlands. The most important conclusion of this investigation is that the Dutch elderly were, in most cases, living independently, as head (or wife of the head) of the household in which they were residing.
