What is the living situation of the elderly in the Netherlands?

© Hollandse Hoogte / Mooi echt!
As the elderly are more vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus, they currently tend to be (even) more isolated than others. In addition, home care is under pressure nowadays, which means the elderly need to rely more on informal care.

Where do most elderly people live?

The elderly are overrepresented in rural areas. There are relatively many elderly in the northern and eastern regions and in the provinces of Zeeland and Limburg. Although cities have relatively lower shares of elderly residents, the urban population density means they do form a large group in numbers. In 2019, there were altogether more than 220 thousand residents aged 70 or older in the four largest cities: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht.

There were relatively many single elderly people living in the largest cities. Amsterdam had the highest share of single elderly (52 percent), followed by The Hague (49 percent), Rotterdam (47 percent) and Groningen (47 percent). The share of elderly without children toelichting 1> was relatively high in a number of large cities; it stood at 23 and 21 percent of the over-70s respectively living in the cities of Amsterdam and The Hague. Relatively many childless elderly are found in the southern Netherlands. They may include elderly who do have children, but whose children were living across the border, e.g. in Belgium.

How long is the living distance between the elderly and their children?

It is more difficult for children living at a longer distance from their parents to offer assistance in everyday situations, for example buying groceries. In the group of elderly people with one or more children, 29 percent were living at an average distance of more than 30 km in 2014. In less urbanised areas in the northern and eastern part of the country and in the provinces of Zeeland and Limburg, the average distance was longer than in the western and central part of the country.

1)By municipality of residence of elderly person
 

How many elderly are receiving informal care?

As home care services are facing the pressure of greater demand, the elderly are likely (even) more dependent on informal care< toelichting 2>. In 2016, a share of 10 percent among the over-65s indicated receiving informal care. The share ranged from 8 percent in Friesland province to 11 percent in Noord-Brabant, Limburg, Drenthe and Flevoland. This concerns all forms of informal care, regardless of type of activity and number of hours. This informal care may be provided by a partner, by children, friends or neighbours. <g5>
