Residential facilities for the elderly

Managing the risks of a old people’s homes

Italy has come to know the context of an aging population after other industrialised western countries such as France, Denmark, West Germany, and has quickly come to occupy the first position among the oldest nations of the globe. 
Life expectancy at birth is approaching 78 years for men and 83 for women. 
In the early years of the twenty-first century we witnessed a growth in the Italian population hospitalised in residential facilities. The increase relates in particular to over 75 year-olds. 
People move away from their family and from their normal living situation for several reasons. There are several situations of hardship: social, economical, residential or resulting from health problems; each must be matched by an adequate residential offer. 
The risks related to the management of these relate not only to movable and immovable property, but especially to the responsibilities assumed by public and/or private administrators in providing the different services, in particular with regard to: 
  • the care of the person
  • hospitality services, including serving food and drinks
  • services of employees, freelancers, consultants
  • liability of administrators in public companies
