Abstract

This manuscript will explore the meaning of care for the elderly viewed from a nursing perspective, but taking into account all interdisciplinary care characteristics. We will first review the demographic changes in Belgium before going into more detail into the objectives of the care for the elderly. Further, issues concerning the stereotype of ageing, differentiation among age categories in the elderly, the importance of research, and the interplay between long term and acute care will be addressed. In addition to demographic trends a broad framework describing other major trends in health care and society (i.e. epidemiological shifts, knowledge explosion, introduction of new technologies, changes in consumer preferences, changes in lifestyle and culture, socio-economic changes and budgetary restrictions in health care) will allow to understand the complexity of care for the elderly.
