WeDO Events

WeDO2 project events (2013-2015)

The WeDO2 project plans to organise 5 events during two years in different countries.

18-20 March 2014: 2nd meeting in Bonn

The partners discussed a first version of the train the trainer module, which then will be tested in the different countries' learning areas. The training module is based on reflecting on what is good care, how the EUSTaCEA Charter of the rights and responsibilities of older people in need of long-term care and the WeDO EU quality framework for long-term care services can contribute to it, and how concretely change can be implemented.

A study visit was organised to Cologne, where three organisations could introduce their work: the Seniors' network, the Federal Initiative Dementia Service of North Rhine Westphalia, and the organisation Dementia und Art

Videos from the meeting are available here.
