Abstract (Translated): 
This research tries to assess the dependents and Long Term Care costs for next years in Spain. To do this, it has been taken account data from the Survey on Disabilities, Impairments and Health Status and population forecasts estimated by INE, the legal rules passed between 2006 and 2008, and some former studies about individual costs of long term care. The key point in this study is the concept of cost per point of scale. Once calculated, forecasts till 2050 have been estimated. Finally, the results have been compared with those included in the Long Term Care Act.
