AnnotationReports prepared for the Colloquy considered four main themes. Theme 1, Social and medico-social requirements and the organisation of services and establishments, examined analysis of the physical, mental and social requirements, and planning and co-ordination. Theme 2, Support in the home, comprised papers on the role of the social services in the Netherlands, and home-based care. Theme 3, Socio-cultural aspects, examined the role of the family, voluntary workers, and leisure. Theme 4, on special establishments for the very old, examined alternatives to domiciliary and residential care provision, and full-time establishments. A working paper prepared for the Colloquy by the Rapporteur General, David Hobman, presents key issues from earlier Council of Europe documents and other international sources, and highlights specific issues likely to be helpful in discussion. The conclusions adopted are presented: in general the Colloquy recognised rights and principles which must underlie all policies designed to increase the quality of life in very old age. (RH).
