INTERREG IVC 8 Weak points of CBR Weak points lack of network of social service for the elderly living out of city in distant areas: Outpatient Social Service Housing social services Home assistance insufficient support of subsidiarity (on the level of citizen and public administration, where municipalities dont want to take over the responsibility for their citizens) low intergenerational and communal solidarity
INTERREG IVC 9 weak points of CBR insufficient health prevention especially in issues such as nutrition and healthy life style; insufficient providing of information concerning health and social issues, e.g. possibilities of social and health services; insufficient transport connection for Central Bohemia citizens to get to unexisting healthcare network; low use of ICT in health system e.g. the relation and communication between a health-care-provider and a patient.
INTERREG IVC 10 Target of CBR Targets of CBR within DART to support elderly people to remain self-sufficient and stay in their homes as long as possible. to support Social Inclusion of the elderly: creating Supportive Home Housing Policies (to support a better quality of life, better psychological wellness and positivity that helps keeping the elderly living in their homes). ensure the social and health services in low populated areas and raise awareness of ageing (e.g. on nutrition, prevention of diseases). Exchange of the best practices with each partner of DART in the area of public services dedicated to the elderly.
INTERREG IVC 11 Activities of CBR Envisaged activities: Identification of the most affected areas by demographic changes (analysis). Finding the best tools to ensure better accessibility to basic social and health services and to improve their quality, especially the service for the elderly (recommendation).
INTERREG IVC 12 Activities Other possible activities: Assess impact (benefits) of innovative social systems which might complement existing social network and design the most effective one. Regional information centres (care points) System of volunteers/assistants (neighbourhood assistance) Comparing the opportunities for social inclusion of the elderly in two municipalities, which are similar in number of population, area and some demographic data (comparative study). The outputs should be implemented into strategic documents such as Regional Development Plan and Mid-term Social Service Development Plan.
