Innovation or degradation: the urgent crossroads of elderly care


We’re at a crucial turning point. By 2040, nearly 25% of Belgium's population will be older than 65, needing not just more care but also more complex care, especially for conditions like dementia. 🤯 This threatening wave of need poses a question we can't afford to ignore: How will our government finance the escalating care needs without compromising quality?


How will our government finance the escalating care needs without compromising quality?

The answer is unsettling. Without a radical rethinking of how we deliver and finance elderly care, we risk spiraling into a scenario where the quality degrades, and where the financial system is on the brink of collapse. 🤔


But the challenges don't end there. The real estate sector, vital for creating sustainable and affordable living spaces for our elderly, faces its own set of hurdles. The current economic realities clash with the need for sustainable building practices, putting further pressure on the viability of care facility investments despite the glaring need for more facilities.


It's time to rethink the system. We need more than just incremental changes; we need a revolution in both the government's financial models and regulatory frameworks and the business strategies of real estate investors. Transparency will be key, clarifying the true cost of care and living, and delineating the responsibilities of government versus private funding.
