Le Plan prevoit la réforme en cinq grands axes:
1) Donner aux personnes âgées dépendantes le libre choix de rester chez elles : en développant les services de soins et d’aide à domicile ; en soutenant davantage les aidants familiaux ; en assurant une continuité entre domicile et maison de retraite ;
2) Inventer la maison de retraite de demain et permettre aux personnes âgées vulnérables de mieux y vivre, en augmentant le nombre de soignants, en améliorant la qualité de vie, en maîtrisant les prix.
3) Adapter l’hôpital aux personnes âgées, en développant la filière gériatrique et en resserrant des liens tant avec le domicile qu’avec la maison de retraite ;
4) Assurer pour l’avenir le financement solidaire de la dépendance, afin de garantir un haut niveau de protection sociale face à la dépendance ;
5) Insuffler une nouvelle dynamique à la recherche et à la prévention.
