"Local, C - and S-politicians: Without significantly increased funding from the government, threatened the welfare"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. The last 30 years, the whole of the public sector in Sweden talked about the demographic challenge we face, when 40-talisterna will be in need of care for the elderly. "
"Perhaps that is why so many of the day – when our greatest generation ever begin to fill the 80-year – thinks that it have gone pretty well anyway?"
"We who sign this article notes, based on various starting points and perspectives, this is not really true. We take care of the elderly and the important function it has for the citizens. "
"And the fact is that the situation within the amazing Swedish care of the elderly soon is acute. It applies to the whole of Sweden, both large and small municipalities. "
"Our purpose is not to frighten, but to highlight a reality that we all have opportunities to manage and make something good out of, but that the resources are available when needed. "
"We share the recognition that without the necessary investment in a well-functioning care of the elderly at risk in the long term we both Sweden's economic growth and our common welfare. "
"just now pressed the care of the elderly from all sides. And despite great efforts from both the responsible staff so begins the consequences appear. "
"► For patients and relatives. Individexemplen are pouring in the media, but also seen at the big picture there is reason to be concerned. "
"► To the staff. The Swedish work environment authority national oversight of the care of the elderly launched in 2017, has so far resulted in 3 500 requirements in the measures after 1 200 visits 150 employers. In the Wage from notes, seven out of ten nurses – the backbone of the äldreomsorgens business – that the staffing is insufficient each week. "
"► For the municipalities. The demographic challenge is growing. At the same time that older as well as young people become more increases the number of people of working age only by an average of 34 000 people per year up to 2026. It means both a funding crisis, when there are fewer to support more, and a kompetensförsörjningsproblem. "
"We know that 10 000 nurses need to be trained and recruited annually to 2026. The challenge looks different – but is equally present for large and small municipalities. The välfärdstekniska solutions available increases initially with the requirements of the economy – and neither can replace the personal meeting or to the competence of the staff."
"So no, we do not call the wolf will. The wolf stryker against our legs. "
"in 2028 will 255 000 more swedes have the joy to fill the 80 years or older. This is an increase of 50 per cent. The elderly population often is healthy and can do without big efforts for longer is positive, but also creates a pent-up demand."
"A theoretical possibility would be to reallocate funds between activities. But that space is simply not when needs are growing even within the school in the coming years. "
"Only minor adjustments between budget lines can not withstand a challenge of this magnitude. There must be an investment in care for the elderly. "
"We expect long-term and substantial rise in targeted government subsidies for the care of the elderly in future budgets, on the assumption that vårbudgeten on april 10, will be a first step."
"So, we pursue the Swedish care of the elderly – and sending the wolf to the forest where it belongs. "
