This method used wasbased on two questionnaires, one for 97 members of institutions for elderly people and another for 138 users of those institutions, and interviews with the institutions’ managers and local authorities. The work carried out revealed that there is a wide range of sustainability factors in the economic and financial domain, with emphasis on the following: 1) the state’s financial contribution; 2) the users’ financial contribution; 3) members’ payments; 4) openness to other groups with greater financial capacity; 5) organisation and management of institutions; 6) caution regarding indebtedness.
