map of poland

Currently, 14% of Poland’s population is over the age of 65 and that percentage is expected to more than double by 2050.  This rapidly ageing population, coupled with an increasingly mobile young population, is putting considerable strain on the Polish tradition of the family caregiver.  At this time, assistance for family carers is rather limited, with the bulk of Polish care services provided to people who require assistance where there is no family or if the family is unable to ensure such help.

In recent years, as a result of healthcare reform and the emergence of a primary care healthcare sector, home care, provided by independent environmental nurses has begun to develop in Poland.  This relatively new cultural acceptance of in home care creates a great opportunity for Right at Home in Poland, not only because our services alleviate familial strains, but also because private companies, such as Right at Home have the expertise to professionally employ and manage carers, ensuring quality, personalized care is provided to seniors and disabled adults in their own homes.
