We need to care for the elderly.

Jobs By 23 February, 2021 No Comments

The pandemic has made clear how important are elderly people in our society. Not just their knowledge and experience are what counts, but also their courage and mindfulness have been a reference for us. In countries like Spain old people participate in social life, independent from the pandemic. In Madrid, they go to the theatre and restaurants, many times hand in hand with their couple.

It makes you feel good about becoming old to see how we cared in this crisis for our parents, grandparents as well as aunts and uncles. When the pandemic started it looked like we were killing the elderly leaving them alone in their homes and residences. But we turned around the story immediately, because their is no such plan to kill older people as some conspiracy theories want to make us believe. However, to care properly for elderly Europe needs 1,264,576 new residential spots to cover dependence, which will increase with the all the time growing life expectancy. It is good news because it is generating over 632,000 new jobs.

With Boris Johnson announcing another lockdown on Sunday night, sadly, the future of the labour market in the UK is looking rather bleak. Most recent reports suggest that we are on course for the worst recession in more than 300 years. The Institute for Policy Research meanwhile warned that more than one million young people will be unemployed in 2021. Whilst those searching for work in the new year are going to be facing stiffer competition, there is an additional challenge — the virtual interview process. Online interviews have been a part of many companies’ processes for years, but since the Covid-19 outbreak and lockdown was implemented, it has become a staple.
