GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR LONG TERM CARE OF ELDERLY PEOPLE AT HOME

Long Term Care at clients’ home is one mosaic stone in the overall intention of mainly provided for elderly people, is a long lasting process within EU countries and promotes the paradigm shift from dependent living to independent living settings including right of self-determination how, where, with whom to share daily life without full physical and/or mental capacity. In Scandinavia, infrastructure of institutions which provide care was, by law, reduced drastically already 40 years ago. Other countries followed and nowadays it is not questioned whether a person should stay at home while being in need of support. Further, integrated care provision is the common approach. It would be an artificial distinction between health and social service provision since both services are interrelated. The distinction is sometimes made due to different financial sources and resources for one or the other service but not quite supportive for the beneficiary.
