A Europe that cares is a Europe that empowers conference

FRA took part in the online AGE Annual Conference 2022 on 18 November.

It brought together politicians, experts and civil society organisations.

They discussed the European Care Strategy for caregivers and care receivers from the perspective of older people.

The results highlighted the need for a person-centred approach, integrated services and investments in the infrastructure, and improved working conditions. Long-term care services need to be outcome-oriented with a focus on the independence, and the dignity of older people and their quality of life.
