    Sammanfattning

    Background: In order to contain public health care spending, European countries attempt to promote informal caregiving. However, such a cost reducing strategy will only be successful if informal caregiving is a substitute for formal health care services. We therefore analyze the effect of informal caregiving for people with dementia on the use of several formal health care services. Study design: The empirical analysis is based on primary data generated by the EU-project ´RightTimePlaceCare` which is conducted in 8 European countries. 1223 people with dementia receiving informal care at home were included in the study.
