Active Ageing and Community Care aims at providing creative, high-quality programs to assist elders both within state-owned residences and within their own homes. In the firm belief that older persons are happier to remain in their own homes, Active Ageing and Community Care set out to create a wide network of services that could provide support to these client groups in their own homes according to their particular needs. However, in order to secure a balanced continuum of care, Active Ageing and Community Care has also committed itself to providing long-term stay residential care facilities for those older adults who, despite support in the community, would still find it difficult to cope in their own homes. This care aspect is provided by six state-owned community residential homes which provide residential care to persons having various degrees of dependence. Both community and residential service settings have flourished rapidly over the past few years. The growing number and proportion of older citizens and persons with disabilities along with the Active Ageing and Community Care’s untiring efforts to enhance the quality of life of these people require ongoing monitoring and effective management of resources.
