Beyond their fundamental health and daily needs, older people have a variety of care needs. Social care, safety and security, companionship, love, and respect are some of the demands that must be sufficiently met, particularly when dealing with chronic illness. It appears that older people in various societies have a lot of unmet care demands. It is imperative that these requirements be recognized and appropriately addressed within Algerian society.
