Abstract

Latin America is rapidly aging and demands for dependency care are growing. Uruguay and Costa Rica have initiated a national care policy and other countries in the region such as Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, and Mexico are considering doing so. However, despite the advance in scientific evidence in recent years, there is confusion in the content of these systems. In international literature, these models are framed under the term long-term care, with their most direct translation into Spanish of cuidados de larga duración, but which, until now, has been assimilated to that of dependencia. They are not exactly the same and this has implications for the design of policies. This work proposes an analysis framework for the conceptualization of both terms and policies.
