Although the institutionalization of people involves some costs, however it is needed when the elderly persons have no home and they require constant care, that can be achieved at home, but no one can administer, they have no legally binding or they cannot fulfill their duties because of health, economic situation or family services and have no income. An important role was played by the NGO’s that have been the model for social institutions due to the fact that they benefited from the Western states experience in social services for the elderly. Today, the NGO’s provide home services for the elderly.
