Everyone agrees that people who live in their homes in the community thrive – be they old, young or in between.

Recently EU Commissioner Vladimir Spidia released a report that was drafted by experts to address the issues of institutional care reform.

As noted in the report, there is strong evidence in support of transition from institutional care to community-based alternatives. It can provide better results for users, their families and staff while costs are comparable to those of institutional care.

This is an important issue and vital to quality of life for all individuals.
