Long Term Program For Development of Social Infrastructure For Older Adults In Rural Area
In the Haloze area, which connects five rural municipalities, long-term care in retirement homes or in the community is not organized in any of these municipalities. Therefore, municipalities for those who cannot cover more intensive care with their own funds, enable and pay for this service in the homes of senior citizens in other municipalities. As a result, a large part of the municipal budget funds flows to other municipalities, and the elderly have to move to more remote places, even though they want to stay close to relatives and friends. At the same time, the municipalities are losing quite a few caregiver jobs, which could be filled by young people from their own municipalities, which would help revitalize Haloze. Therefore, we implemented a financially sustainable longer-term plan for the construction of residential buildings that will be adapted to the older adults, based on the model of hierarchical structure of long-term care facilities, based on the model suggested by Drobne and Bogataj in the paper “The Role of Local Action Groups for the Optimal Allocation of Investments in the Long-Term Care” at SOR'19.
