AnnotationNorwegian elderly people are increasingly turning to public services for help in preference to family help. A study in Oslo found that a majority would turn to the public services when in need of long-term help, even when children were living close by. The growing preference for public help is taken primarily as a response to increased availability of public services, and not as a reflection of weaker inter-generational solidarity. (KJ).
