This chapter addresses the challenges and needs in the development of new care models for long-term care settings. These settings are likely to become the most important places for end-of-life care in the near future. The specific models developed in the USA and the Netherlands (with its unique and specific nursing home physicians and a relatively high proportion of deaths occurring in care homes) are discussed and serve as illustrations of how to address important challenges.

Keywords:   end-of-life care, care models, home care, nursing homes
