[Autom. eng. transl.] The research, conducted as part of the National Observatory on the Family on some excellent practices in the field of family friendly self-sufficient services for the elderly, allows some significant results to emerge. In this way it is intended to highlight the importance in carrying out care interventions, both at a structural and symbolic level, of family ties and of the primary and community networks in which the elderly live or have lived. The analysis reveals a considerable wealth of experiences promoted by a network of public, private and private social subjects, centered on three different and peculiar areas: the home, family networks and the community, understood as a living environment. The challenge of the familiarization of services to the person, crucial in the last transition of life, is gathered in a peculiar way above all from the experiences that combine a strong motivation to action (relational values) with high levels of professionalism and management of organizational complexity. Situations are analytically presented in which free, professional and market exchanges intertwine in a virtuous dynamic that produces a new capacity for the communities to take charge of their elders. The volume also presents the documentation of the work that the Centro Maderna carries out in favor of the elderly.
