The French National Assembly social affairs committee is recommending that people over 50 living in France be required to purchase insurance to help pay for their future care needs.

As reported in The Connexion, the committee says that the state can no longer afford to pay for elder care and, like other European countries, the French will need to look at ways to share the cost with beneficiaries.     This and other recommendations will be reviewed by the Government after the summer break.
