Excerpt
General Aging and the health and quality of life of the elderly tend to be low priorities in the government policies of most European countries. There is a need for further efforts to improve active life expectancy, income support, housing, transport, community participation and services for the elderly. The goal is to improve the quality of their lives and reduce inequities in aging existing in the Region. Most elderly people maintain their health, which enables them to function in their homes and in the community. In their later years, however, they may experience chronic health problems and become frailer, and may seed to use long-term care services provided in the community or in institutions. The purpose of community long-term care is to enable people to Live autonomously in their own homes by delivering to them the necessary health and social services. When living at home becomes too difficult, elderly people could move to institutions which provide more intensive medical attention and services that promote their good functioning. At present, there are often few links between the hospital and community services. Community services may not be well coordinated or simply not available. This might be also due to lack of professional training, old-fashioned attitudes and prejudices. The challenge for governments, service providers and the public is to put in place a system that provides support to people who need it at the right time and place and for as Long as necessary. The doors separating the institutions from the community should be opened and the services should be mutually complementary.
