Journal of Community Positive Practices, 2019, issue 4, 11-27

Abstract: The difficulties of families in Romania that have elderly people in care are the main subject of this analysis. The research is part of the exploratory and diagnosis area of a specific social work theme with multidisciplinary implications. The Romanian society nowadays faces an unprecedented aging process. The need for a diagnosis and for proper questions contributes to the understanding of a complex phenomenon that, in many situations, goes beyond a simple picture of the figures. The main statistical data was extracted from the PHC (Population and Housing Censuses), Eurostat, NSI (the National Statistical Institute of Romania, for demographic, social, and economic indicators), while Eurobarometers and secondary studies relevant for the diagnosis of the quality of life in the case of the elderly have been used for subjective data. Besides the descriptive and explanatory approach of social phenomena related to the elderly groups in Romania, I have chosen an approach of the statistical indicators relevant to this topic that I introduced in the analysis.
