The Law 2/1988 of Social Services of Andalusia, set a public system of social services in Andalusia, with the aim of putting at the disposal of Andalusian people the resources, actions and services for the achievement of the comprehensive development, as well as the prevention, treatment and elimination of situations that lead to marginalization. In that way, the Law 6/1999 for the attention and protection of elderly people, guarantee a comprehensive system for the attention and protection of elderly people that give an answer to the planned, coordinated and global action for the physical, psychological and social wellbeing of elderly people. Meanwhile, the Andalusia Government is aware of the social demands of elderly people, and has to give an answer to the services currently existing, adapting them the specific needs of the beneficiaries. In that line, it was created the Card Junta 65 as an agile system of services for elderly people, by a single document, ending with a lot of formalities (Decree 76/2001).
