It is great when a family is extended, when children and grandchildren may take care of the elderly, but it is not always the case said the Prime Minister. He pointed out that support centres for the elderly are something that must be supported by the state.

Life is hard for people who struggle with every-day problems, who suffer the loss of the loved ones and also physical pain related to many illnesses, and that is why the government will do everything to increase expenses for the support for people who use such facilities said the Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

Three or four years ago the expenditure for such facilities, so-called elderly people's homes, was PLN 30 million. Today it is several times more and next year we plan to dedicate further resources pointed out the Head of Governement. At the same time he indicated that these resources will be dedicated not only to create new facilities, but also for social and rehabilitation services.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced also that this year the government will establish about 300 elderly people's homes and seniors clubs.
