The French Healthcare Days 2022 will focus on the management and supply of products dedicated to the accompaniment and treatment of illnesses suffered by the elderly and/or dependent persons.

In the context of the general aging of the world’s population, the need for long-term care is increasing. It is predicted that by 2050, the number of elderly people unable to care for themselves will increase fourfold in developing countries. Many very old people lose the ability to live independently due to reduced mobility, frailty or other physical or mental problems such as degenerative diseases mostly related to age. Many require some form of long-term care, which may include home or community-based care and daily assistance, nursing home placement and extended stays in medical facilities.
