In this chapter, we compare the regimes of migration and social protections provided for migrant domestic workers in the UK, Germany and Turkey. The findings here show the difficulties of the working lives of the 120 women in three cities, with a special focus on undocumented migrant women in Istanbul. However, regimes in host countries were not the sole culprit, especially in the face of patriarchal, religious and gendered codes that impacted on the women’s lives. Their narratives also show how the women were squeezed within a triangle of private agencies, employers/house owners and State funding (in the UK and Germany).

The official health and government organisations in Turkey also see the country developing health tourism by becoming a regional centre of care for the elderly. The argument is that the cost of caring for the elderly and those who are retired due to ill-health can place a heavy burden on families and society in developed countries. The Turkish government plans to provide significant investment opportunities to the local and foreign investors in the tourism sector for the elderly and the disabled. According to the World Ageing Organisation, there are currently 600 million people who are above the age of 65 and this number is expected to reach 2 billion by 2050 (ISPAT 2014 ‘Healthcare Industry in Turkey’ ISPAT/ Investment Support and Promotion Agency of Turkey). This enthusiasm of Turkish government must be considered in connection with the new trend in Germany to send the elderly overseas for care. http://www.invest.gov.tr/en-US/infocenter/publications/Documents/HEALTHCARE.INDUSTRY.pdf Accessed in September, 2016.
