In order to prepare its own-initiative opinion, the EESC is organising a remote public hearing on "Towards a new care model for the elderly: learning from the Covid-19 pandemic" on 27 October 2021.

The aim of the event is to gather input from other EU Institutions and civil society organisations.

We will debate around the following questions:

  • Which are the structural causes that have led to the elderly care systems to become some of the most contagious and lethal factors of this pandemic?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of the various care models in the EU?
  • Which are the civil society perspective and proposals for a new care model for the elderly?

Your participation and input are most welcome!

In September 2016, the EESC adopted an own-initiative opinion on "The rights of live-in care workers". It was a first policy document at the European level dealing with the sector of live-in care work in Europe. As follow-up to this initiative, the EESC will carry out 5 country visits to countries of origin and destination of live-in care workers (United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Italy and Poland) to deepen the research on labour and work conditions of these persons and the quality of care delivery. The findings will be presented in a report to be released by the EESC later in 2018.
