In the new journal article, Alina Schmitz and Martina Brandt investigate regional inequalities in well-being in the population aged 50+ in 96 European regions. They examine the role of  regional care infrastructure for well-being in old age. Conclusions for social policy in Europe’s ageing societies, such as ensuring access to long-term care, are discussed.
