Description

El presente Plan nace de la voluntad del Gobierno Regional, a través de la Consejería de Trabajo y Política Social, de ofrecer un conjunto de medidas que atiendan las necesidades de las Personas Mayores de la Región de Murcia. Uno de los retos con los que se enfrentan las políticas sociales de los países desarrollados, es adecuar su funcionamiento y la distribución de sus recursos a un contexto de creciente envejecimiento de la población. Precisamente, son estas características las primeras que podemos destacar del Plan de Acción Social para las Personas Mayores de la Región de Murcia (2005-07), que tengo la satisfacción de presentar: la diversidad de recursos que establece y la implicación de las distintas entidades, públicas y privadas en su prestación. Si a esto añadimos la preocupación por la calidad en la atención y la dotación presupuestaria que contiene, nos encontramos con el que consideramos uno de los proyectos líderes de la Consejería de Trabajo y Política Social en los próximos años.

This Plan was born of the will of the Regional Government, through the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy, to provide a set of measures that address the needs of older persons in the region of Murcia. One of the challenges that the social policies of developed countries face is to adapt its operation and the distribution of its resources to a context of an increasing aging population. This implies a reorientation of policy priorities and commitment of partnership between the government and social organizations. Indeed, it is these characteristics that we highlight the first Social Action Plan for Older Persons in the Region of Murcia (2005-07), I have the pleasure to present: the diversity of strategies proposed, the involvement of the various entities public and private in its provision, the quality of care, and the budget that it contains.
