Do you care for the Wellbeing and Dignity of Older adults?
We do, too!
WeDO2 EU project - 18 June 2015, Slough (the UK) - 9.00-13.00
“Human dignity is inviolable. Age and dependency cannot be the grounds for restrictions on any inalienable human right and civil liberty acknowledged by international standards and embedded in democratic constitutions. Everybody, regardless of gender, age or dependency is entitled to enjoy these rights and freedoms and everybody is entitled to defend their human and civil rights” European Charter for the rights and responsibilities of older people in need of long-term care and assistance, preamble.
This event aims to introduce the results of the WeDO2 project, a European learning partnership of 8 organisations coming from 7 different countries (Austria, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Poland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom), and AGE Platform Europe.
The project challenges our perceptions and understanding of what good quality of care and what the rights of older people in need of care mean in practice. To do so, the project partners developed and tested a training package on quality of care in the 7 countries, including interactive, dynamic, intergenerational and participatory approach to learning.
On that day, around the 10th Elder abuse awareness day, the project partners would like to share with you their experiences and what they learned from each other and from the training sessions. They would also like to draw some key policy lessons for the future.
The event is aimed at all those linked to or engaged with providing services or support to improve the quality of life for older people in need of care and assistance.
For registration, please register online here.
The program will be soon available.
