The European Union Social Policy on Older People in the Light of the Deinstitutionalisation of Social Services
The authors propose a holistic look at the problem of population ageing and global and regional effort to improve the quality of seniors’ life and their families through the integration of healthcare, social care, and senior-friendly environment. They also concentrate on the senior policy of the European Union and the concept of care farming against the backdrop of social farming. Finally, they present the results of the two largest studies under the GROWID project. They investigated older people’s needs against the background of the social services provided by care farms.
