Personal services and ageing : proposal for a year of active ageing and solidarity among generations in 2012

By issuing three recommendations, the EFSI stresses the importance of personal services in an ageing population.

Within the context of the 2012 European Year of Active Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity, the EFSI takes the opportunity to stress the high potential for personal services in an ageing population.

The EFSI's aim is to raise European policy makers' awareness through three recommendations :

  • Member States should implement measures to foster the development of home help and care services.
  • An equal treatment between providers and a subsidized regulation of demand should be promoted to boost the offer and meet the demand.
  • The quality of employement and the quality of services should be ensured.
