Bettina MeinowBettina Meinow holds a PhD in social work and has a background in sociology. Currently, she is employed at the Stockholm Gerontology Research Center (Äldrecentrum) and is affiliated to ARC.

Her research mainly concerns trends in health and function in old age, especially multiple complex health problems and their association to mortality over time and for different demographic and socioecomic groups. As life expectancy increases and the relatively healthy and independent period after retirement lasts longer than it did a few decades ago, an important question is whether the period with poor health and dependence on long-term care has been compressed, postponed or expanded, as more recent cohorts survive longer despite health problems. Another focus of research is medical and social care utilization during the last years of life and how population health trends relate to developments in medical and social care services.
