Our aim is to help people stay in charge of their own lives for as long as possible as they age and, where possible, to contribute to the economy and society
The optimal well-being and quality of life for older persons
To be partners with the elderly and society through holistic client oriented policies and support so that elderly people continue to enjoy life to their maximal potential in their individual settings
Indeed, maintaining the autonomy and independence of older generations, as well as guaranteeing a smooth transition from community to long-term care settings, represent key goals. Advances in healthy life years improve the well-being of senior citizens, extend working lives, provide an incentive for economic growth, and most importantly, decrease the pressure on health and social care systems.
Taking a proactive stance in all that concerns population ageing does not only include managing various social and health care services targeting senior citizens, but also enacting policies that improve social inclusion and participation rates well beyond statutory retirement age.
The main objective of Active Ageing and Community Care (AACC) is that of transforming the society of ageing from one of dependency to active ageing, to enable independence and dignity with advancing age. As well, as providing Care Services in the community that assist senior citizens, in ageing-in-place. The objective is largely preventive, involving all age groups in the process of ageing actively across the life course.
