Demographic change, changing family structures and the heterogeneity of individual life situations of older people require new concepts for a self-determined life in old age. The municipal overall concepts for senior citizens form the basis for new communities of responsibility in the sense of "caring communities". Flexible assistance services, outpatient living and forms of care take into account the overwhelming desire of older people to be able to spend their lives at home or at least as if they were at home, even if they need support.
In line with these needs, the purpose of the grant is to advance the implementation of new concepts for self-determined living at home, but also for living as if at home in Bavaria. This is in line with the principle of "outpatient before inpatient".
Within the framework of the guideline for the promotion of new concepts for a self-determined life in old age (Promotion Guideline Self-determined Life in Old Age - SeLA) , the following new concepts for a self-determined life in old age, which take into account the needs of older people, are supported with start-up financing upon application: Neighborhood concepts suitable for senior citizens, neighborhood assistance supported by civic commitment, housing counseling centers, community-oriented forms of housing in old age, such as senior citizens' house communities or intergenerational forms of housing, as well as other innovative outpatient concepts for a self-determined life in old age.
