Towards a more demand driven care sector
Our policymakers only modestly take into account the aspirations of their care needing citizens. They want to have their say en be given the possibility to compose and pay for their care basket. A bigger demand injection in other words and personal care budgets will achieve just that. Foreign examples have shown that by doing so new initiatives have seen the light. Furthermore, economists expect the increased dynamism will translate into lower prices and better quality, fellow Brieuc Van Damme says.
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.
