French term or phrase: Accompagnés
Il n’est pas possible, dans une société, que les enfants soient moins bien soignés et moins bien accompagnés que les adultes.
To me. I thnk that it may mean something like follow-up? soigné beeing short term and accompagné beeing long term?

Explanation:
I really like the French term "accompagner" in this type of context. When you "accompany" someone, you are alongside them. In English, the term "support" would be used here, a term I feel does not convey quite so well the idea of what is involved. When you "support" someone, you can almost hear an idea of bearing a load.

The general idea of your extract is about the quality of care and support being provided.
