Europe’s demographic future and age-related consequences
How does our demographic future look like and how will that influence age-related expenditures? How deep in trouble is Belgium compared to the 26 other EU member states? The projections presented here by the European Commission are helpful in highlighting the immediate and future policy challenges for governments posed by demographic trends.
Grey Gold - How the babyboomers can make eldercare a success story
The debate on ageing has been going on for quite a few years, but nothing has actually been done. The clock keeps ticking… With this book we want to stimulate the reform process, and offer a new reference frame for the debate. All too often the debate is focussed on the costs and burdens. Eldercare is more than retirement homes, homecare and care for the demented. In this book we offer concrete policy proposals on the financing of eldercare, on how the available money is best spent (we strongly believe the elderly are best placed to make such decisions, and not the care facilities), on how we can resolve the personnel shortage, and how we can prepare our houses and neighbourhoods for the 3rd age.
