Care services for Elderly: State of the art and perspectives. Proceedings of the seminar Fano, 4th November 2004

The Fano proceeding contains an overview of the services provided to elderly people in the different countries involved in the project, together with a presentation of the most relevant economic, social and legislative factors concerning older people.
The objectives of the book are the comparison among the different welfare systems in Europe aimed to identify the best practices of service provision, mainly devoted to prevent the marginalization of older people.

These findings derive from a wide research activity carried out at national level aiming at investigating, among others, the following indicators: demography, pension systems and national and local welfare.

The proceeding, published in English in 1.000 copies, has been distributed to the partners for further dissemination at national level.

It will be particularly useful to policy makers, local administrators and managers of social organizations when designing new social plans and/or services, but also to trainers and students involved in social matters and disciplines.
