There is no allocated money to several nursing homes or minimum standards for domestic help, in the budget.
While the children have been taken into account in the budget bill for the year 2020, with minimumsnormeringer in day-care institutions, the government and the other parties behind the agreement, in turn, failed their best - and great-grandparents.
How does it sound from the Older The director, Bjarne Hastrup, who calls for more care homes and better home.
- It shakes us, that in the finance is so few concrete initiatives, which helps the weakened elderly. The optimisation has been stedmoderligt treated, says Bjarne Hastrup.
- There are 73.000 older, sitting in their own home without assistance, and we stand in the next ten years and the shortcomings of the 25,000 care homes.
- at the same time, not listening to our prayer, that there will be minimum standards for assisted living and nursing homes, says Bjarne Hastrup.
He believes that the government and the other parties behind the budget bill, the SF, The Radical, the Unity and the Alternative, does not understand that there is a need for a significant improvement of the care of older people.
He believes that the former government and the Danish people's Party to a far greater extent remembered the older people in the previous years ' budgets.
the Problem with the agreement is, according to Bjarne Hastrup, that the municipalities do not necessarily give priority to the optimisation.
For example, has 23 municipalities for the next year dropped the klippekortordning, that gives the weak the elderly a half-hour extra help a week, which can go for everything from walks to a visit to the library.
- This means that there are elderly in nursing homes and in their own homes, who next year will experience an inadequate treatment. It affects debilitated elderly hard, says Bjarne Hastrup.
the Elderly, the Matter can, however, find the individual bright spots - including a plan to staff 1000 new nurses.
the Budget bill for 2020, however, contains 125 million, which will go to enhance care for the elderly through a pilot scheme in a number of municipalities.
the Money should go to see of how you can get more time for the individual older person - for example, by eliminating unnecessary paperwork.
