Care, retirement & wellbeing of older people across different welfare regimes

Care, Retirement & Wellbeing of Older People Across Different Welfare Regimes (CREW) was an international research project funded by national institutions as part of the Joint Programming Initiative, More YearsBetter Lives. Launched in 2017, the project has just come to an end. CREW’s goal was to examine the interrelationships between care, work, health and wellbeing of older people. Specifically, the project investigated:

  1. the determinants of health and wellbeing at older ages;
  2. the patterns of caregiving, and their impact on wellbeing and social participation of older people;
  3. pension systems; and
  4. wellbeing of older adults without close kin.

More details on the project (team, publications and events) can be found at the dedicated website: crewmoreyearsbetterlives.wordpress.com.

This e-book constitutes the final outcome of the project. It brings together a series of short articles published in N-IUSSP and based on research papers published in the scope of the project by national teams.
