Resumen

El objetivo de este artículo es analizar la transparencia en los servicios de residencias de personas mayores hacia sus beneficiarios. Para ello identificamos tres dimensiones de la política y sus elementos específicos que nos permiten evaluar la transparencia en la implementación de estos servicios. El artículo desarrolla y somete a verificación empírica el marco analítico para evaluar la transparencia de los servicios de atención a personas mayores en España. Por un lado, examinamos en qué grado las residencias (tanto públicas como privadas) están obligadas a proporcionar información sobre su desempeño. Para ello este artículo analiza las obligaciones formales a las que están sujetas las residencias tanto públicas como privadas en las diecisiete comunidades autónomas (CC. AA.). Por otro lado, analizamos el contenido de los mensajes publicados a través de Twitter por las tres asociaciones de empresas más grandes del sector en España: la Federación Empresarial de la Dependencia, la Asociación de Empresas de Servicios para la Dependencia y el Círculo Empresarial de Atención a las Personas. El objetivo de este análisis es determinar si la transparencia es una prioridad para estas organizaciones en la prestación de los servicios, independientemente de las obligaciones legales a las que están sujetos los proveedores directos de estos servicios.
