As a part of social policy, the Austrian government adopted a plan for long-term care. The plan seeks to provide equal access to health care regardless of peoples’ income. It enables people to purchase health care services according to their needs and secures staying at home as long as possible. Currently, more than 80 percent of people older than 60 years are receiving health care at home.
