          Abstract

          Objective: The aim of this research is to analyze aging population demographics compared to the current demand of long-term care services available in the Slovak Republic. Methods: This paper is a secondary source research study augmented by person to person conversation with Slovak Doctoral Students at Trnava University. Results: The Slovak government should increase efforts to integrate both the social and medical healthcare spheres. Conclusion: The study indicated that the Slovak Republic is experiencing an aging population and may not be able to accommodate elders in the future due to an increased demand for services. There is opportunity for growth within the informal caregiving sector by increasing support and education. Increasing preventative and ambulatory care services can ensure accessibility and more medical staff educated in the field of Geriatrics. There is an opportunity to conduct more research on future long-term care trends.
