Danish Elderly Reform Receives Mixed Reviews from Advocacy Group

In a recent statement from the organization Ældre Sagen (The Elderly Association), satisfaction was expressed with the overall intentions of the new elderly reform that was presented on Thursday evening. The reform, which has been developed in collaboration between the government and several agreement parties, aims to increase self-determination for the elderly and greater trust in employees within the care sector. A key part of the reform is also the implementation of fixed teams, which are expected to reduce sick leave and improve care. Despite these positive measures, there are critical voices within Ældre Sagen, especially regarding the lack of specific requirements for municipalities in the reform. Per Tostenæs, chief consultant at Ældre Sagen, points out the need for more concrete demands on municipalities to ensure that all vulnerable elderly people receive the necessary help. “We would have liked to see more concrete requirements in the agreement towards the municipalities to ensure that all vulnerable elderly people receiving help actually get this opportunity,” he stated.

Ældre Sagen now hopes that when the reform is translated into concrete legislation, clear expectations will be set for municipalities to meet the new standards – this should not be a choice, but an obligation. The reform also includes initiatives to ensure that the needs of the elderly are at the center and that there are as few people as possible involved in the individual’s care, which Ældre Sagen also views very positively. The organization acknowledges that these changes can help improve the quality of care that the elderly receive in their daily lives.
