Les métiers du grand âge, métiers à risque ?

Abstract : Long-term care (LTC) jobs are key to promote health aging policies. LTC workers usually are nurses and personal care workers providing care at home or in residencies. LTC workers often declare facing greater mental and physical health issues compared to other workers. Using German panel data, we estimate the impact of LTC jobs on health. Our results suggest that LTC workers tend to report a lower health compared to other workers. Following prior OECD work, we recommend to improve the working conditions in the sector.
