Das Leitziel dieses Plan ist es, Teilhabe, Selbstbestimmung und ein selbstwirksames Leben aller Menschen in der Mitte unserer Gesellschaft sicherzustellen. Damit soll auch einer gerade im Alter oftmals befürchteten und viel zu oft real eintretenden Isolierung und Vereinsamung entgegentreten werden. Es müssen Rahmenbedingungen schaffen und wirksam umsetzt werden, die eine eigenständige Lebensführung für alle Menschen zu jeder Zeit ermöglichen – und das vor dem Hintergrund begrenzter finanzieller Ressourcen unserer sozialen Sicherungssysteme sowie eines prognostizierten Fachkräftemangels.

The objective of this plan is to ensure integration, self-determination and a self-effective life for all people at the center of our society. To face isolation and loneliness in old age, which are often feared and have been becoming real in too many cases, is a primary goal. To achieve this goal frame conditions that assure an independent live for all people at all times need to be developed and implemented effectively in the context of limited financial resources regarding the social security systems and predicted skills shortages.
