Chile faces one of the greatest challenges in social and health policy. The ageing population demands new rights and programmes. In this context, the constitutional discussion can be a meeting point to address these challenges.The aim of this article is to analyse the design and implementation of policies on care for dependent adults, from the perspective of international experience, in order to analyse the national situation. To this end, a review of the scientific evidence was carried out, with emphasis on some paradigmatic cases. The results show certain consensus in the design and implementation of public programmes, which are particularly interesting because they break the traditional logic of Chilean welfare policies.
