Hanna Pondel , Grażyna Krzyminiewska


The following text, using the paradigm of multifunctional rural development, points out the new possibilities for exploiting the potential inherent in family farms. The idea of care farms, combining care services with elements of agricultural production, allows to introduce innovative solutions related to the processes of ageing of societies. Implementing rural care services improves the quality of senior’s life, provides a new source of income for the farm and also helps to reduce inequalities in access to social services for inhabitants of villages and small towns. The content of this article is in the field of economic and social analyses of rural areas, and the reflections, using the achievements of sociological and economic researches, were based on existing sources and achievements of own researches. The descriptive analysis was used in the presentation.
