Public presentation: What does the law on long-term care bring?

Monday, October 18, 2021 at 4pm via the Zoom video link

Organizer: Ministry of Health and Medical Chamber of Slovenia

On Monday, October 18, 2021, there was a public presentation of the Long-Term Care Law that took place through Zoom.

In Slovenia, the growing need for a uniform systemic regulation of the field of long-term care has been strongly perceived for many years. The regulation is extremely important and also very much connected with the health care system.
"Each of us deserves a decent old age and everyone who cares for the elderly deserves to be paid decently for their work," Health Minister Janez Poklukar accompanied the adoption of the law on long-term care in the government on June 17 this year. The Ministry of Health emphasizes that the proposed solutions create the conditions for long-term care to be accessible, affordable, high-quality and safe, and that no one will be ignored during the periods of life when we become dependent on the help of another person.
