EWL supports EU strategy for the wellbeing and dignity of older people

[Brussels, 21 November 2012] The European Women’s Lobby (EWL) is happy to support the EU strategy for the wellbeing and dignity of older people, coordinated by AGE Platform Europe in the framework of the WEDO project.

The European strategy was developed with the input of a European coalition composed of several key EU stakeholders4 and other EU stakeholders supporting our initiative. It outlines what can and should be done at EU level to promote the wellbeing and dignity of older people in need of care and assistance. Meanwhile the national strategies/work plans developed by national coalitions in 12 countries outline what can and should be done in these countries to achieve our common goal of promoting better quality of life for our ageing population and preventing elder abuse. These strategies aim at offering recommendations on how to better protect older people in need of care, an area which indeed requires more action.
