The Europe 2020 Strategy recognizes that “the number of people over the age of 60 is increasing twice as fast as it was before 2007, that is to say around 2 million a year instead of 1 million previously.

The nursing home sector (NACE Code: Q.87 Residential care activities) assumes new responsibilities that transcend its traditional role of caring for the elderly and are oriented towards greater action in the area of dependency prevention.

For years there has been a debate about the lack of adequacy of the services and services of those who need long-term care.

Currently, all stakeholders involved in the sector agree that it is necessary to redefine the model of care for the elderly, since these require attention and support of different types and intensity.

Older people aspire to continue their own life projects according to their preferences, for which they demand the right not only to treat their illness, but also to reduce their dependency, to promote their personal autonomy and to include the active life. This right has been recognized in the regulations of all European countries.
