Older people, especially those with fewer digital skills were receiving limited healthcare services during COVID-19. We explore how the health of the aging populations in different countries was affected before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, and what are the effects of labor market attachment on pension income.
We also discuss three dimensions: an age-friendly society – integration and person-centered services – leadership, planning, and coordination – all of which are interconnected and function together. A broad range of collaborative projects must be launched, based on agreements on the integration of health and social services in regional areas or individual municipalities. We would like, therefore, to invite stakeholders, civil society, service providers, and researchers to participate in the seminar and take an active role in discussions aiming to enlighten proposed action in line with the Decade of Healthy Ageing in Europe.
The seminar is carried out within the project Promotion of healthy aging, welfare, and social security, EEA-GRANT-2005.
