It is thus important to address the well-being of this growing share of the population. This work aims at estimating the effects of informal care and formal care on the mental health of dependent elderly. Furthermore, we allow the effect of care to vary de pending on the level of dependence, the gender of the dependent elderly and the relationship between the elderly and the primary informal caregiver.

Many theoretical models include a production function of health which has two inputs, formal care and informal care but t his function has not been the subject of many empirical studies. In order to estimate the health production function, we use the French Disability and Health Survey Using a sample of 4, dependent elderly, three equations are jointly estimated by the maximum-likelihood method: mental health, informal care and formal care.
Correlated residuals partially take into account the relationship between formal and informal cares and the reverse causality of mental health on care received. The results show a positive effect of informal care on mental health, for slightly dependent elderly, for individuals receiving care from friends or neighbors and for men receiving care from a daughter or from siblings.
Formal care decreases the risk of depression and improves the MHI-5 of elderly dependent people, this last effect being higher for women. This abstract was borrowed from another version of this item.

Patricia Ryan Coleman , Nancy M. Finally, as an illustration, six examples of measures aimed at modifying current public aid provided to these individuals are evaluated using the model.
Three measures are related to dependent elderly individuals living in their own homes: the increase in the maximum APA amount, the introduction of resource requirements in order to benefit from APA and the replacement of the current APA co-payment system with an excess system to be adapted based on income. The three other measures cover elderly dependents living in institutions: the systematic attribution of social accommodation benefits without the possibility of recovery, the increase in housing benefits, and the creation of increased housing benefits after a stay of two years.
