Entering the Home to Learn How Household Dynamics Affect Aging

As older populations continue to grow, we must better understand the factors that affect the well-being of the elderly. Matthew Tye will examine formal and informal care and support structures in Vietnam, including intergenerational relationships.

Examining the effects of individual ageing on the well-being of older people and their households in Vietnam, with a view to informing appropriate strategies and policies to address the challenges of accelerated population ageing. Good Long Term Care requires a synthesis of activity from many spheres.
Publicly-funded LTC is provided to an extremely limited extent in Vietnam.
