Friuli Venezia Giulia Autonomous Region ranks as the second Italian Region in terms of senior population. It has implemented many interventions such as allowances granted to caregivers to support the stay at home or new forms of home care. It is one of the first Italian Regions to have adopted a regional law on AHA (Regional Law nr. 22/2014). The Law clearly states that the regional care system is focused on three main pillars to promote independent living and active ageing: supporting home care and social living; supporting healthy lifestyles; supporting socializing projects. The Law envisages an involvement that goes beyond mere medical assistance. It supports the leading role of the elderly, by stressing the concept of awareness, free choice and self-fulfillment. With reference to planning and programming a regional panel on AHA has been set up to implement the law . It is composed of the Central Directorates competent for any aspect related to AHA, the Brussels Liaison Office, IRES - Institute for economic and social research and chaired by a member of the Regional Assembly (Mrs Renata Bagatin), on behalf of the Regional Minister for Health. Members of the Panel advocate for the interests of stakeholders such as Regional scientific Parks, Universities, Local healthcare authorities, Municipalities and the Third sector. An“ecosystem for the elderly” has been designed.

 

 

If you have already developed a strategy or action plan to make your city or community more age-friendly, please upload it (in original language if not available in English): 
Engagement of older people: how are you engaging and involving older people in the process of becoming a more age-friendly city or community? (E.g. Seniors Council, focus group, open consultation, etc.): 

Before the adoption of the regional law, an open consultation has been organized to promote the involvement of all the civil society.

 

 

Cross-sectoral collaboration: What mechanisms have you/are you planning to put in place to facilitate collaborative planning and implementation between different departments of the local administration and across sectors?: 

 

The regional panel on AHA, which is composed of the Central Directorates competent for any aspect related to AHA, represents itself a tool of cross sectorial collaboration. Besides in the last call for “Reference Site” launched by the EIP-AHA (European Innovation Partnership on healthy and active ageing) FVG Region has submitted an application promoting the “Regional System” as a candidate for the label of Reference Site.
