AGE response to EU report on long-term care
The European Commission and the Social Protection Committee released in June 2014 a joint report on 'Adequate social protection for long-term care needs in an ageing society’. AGE prepared an analysis of the report, available here. AGE warmly welcomes the report, as it brings a comprehensive analysis of the challenges faced by EU Member States in light of Europe’s rapid demographic ageing and suggests innovative solutions to ensure a proactive, fair and sustainable response to these challenges. AGE supports all initiatives proposed by the SPC and the European Commission and suggests a few additional actions to support the concrete implementation of the report.
