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!
