How to move beyond the model of nursing homes (Italian “RSA”)?

The social cooperatives CIDAS of Ferrara and Cadiai of Bologna are important third sector entities in Emilia Romagna on which many essential social services depend, including the Residences for the Elderly.

As the population ages, new needs emerge other than those related to acute non-self-sufficiency, but increasingly related to progressive near-non-self-sufficiency and social isolation. LAMA was commissioned to conduct a feasibility study on possible new models of light residential service: we carried out the design of the new service and the economic-financial sustainability plan (business planning) for it. /
