Older people and digitalisation
Executive summary of the statement by BAGSO regarding the Eighth Government Report on Older People
BAGSO published an executive summary of its statement regarding the Eighth Government Report on Older People on the topic “Older People and Digitisation” which was published by the Federal Government on 12 August 2020. While the Report and the statement of the Federal Government address many of BAGSO’s concerns, in the view of BAGSO, the Federal Government’s statement in particular does not go far enough. BAGSO calls for several specific measures like a “Digital Pact for Old Age” and the creation of a mandatory framework for developing digital support structures.
