The necessity of creating policies and social care measures tailored to the needs of older people are the priorities of social structures. It is important to prevent social exclusion of the elderly, maintain an adequate standard of living for the retirees, promote generational solidarity and extend the active life span. The increase in the number of elderly people at social risk and the needs which result in their dependence on other people and the community in general, encourage the development of new direct and multidisciplinary out-of institutional models of social services. It is important to intervene early in detecting older people at social risk and to ensure wider availability of community services and at the same time combat poverty, support social inclusion of vulnerable groups and support greater social security for older people, with improved access to sustainable and high quality social services, including support for the process of deinstitutionalisation.
