pension gap; points out that according to
Eurofound the share of long-term-care
workers increased by one third in the last
decade, in sharp contrast to the
persistently low wages paid to these
workers; calls on the Member States to
ensure that care workers receive decent
wages, as currently wages in the long-
term care and other social services are
21% below the average1a; calls on the
Commission and Member States, as stated
in the report on Long Term Care (LTC)
which was prepared by the European
Commission (DG Employment) and the
Social Protection Committee1b, to

implement reforms that “address the
common objectives of ensuring good-
quality long-term care, accessible and
affordable to all, delivered in a financially

sustainable way”; calls for effective active
labour market and work-life balance
policies to further preserve private and
family life, including through the
transposition and implementation of the

Highlights that greater investment
in health and social care including
workers’ wages, working conditions and
training is essential to improve
recruitment and retention, and to ensure
adequate staffing levels and needs-
oriented services; calls on the
Commission and the Member States to
ensure that significant amount of
investment from the National Recovery
and Resilience Plans is dedicated to
improve healthcare, including improving
working conditions and staffing levels,
training needs and increasing key
services, reconstructing provision of basic
care and supporting long term care and
other public social services; insists on the
weaknesses identified in the stress tests of
the health and social sector to be
addressed through the NRRPs and the
next EU programme for health
(EU4Health) as well as through ‘CSRs on
these sectors;
