Although significant efforts have been made during the past few years, respect for human dignity, ethics and human rights are still largely ignored. The cohorts of baby boomers seem as affected as the over eighty.
How to prevent the elderly from becoming either a mere economic market or a healthcare budgetary adjustment variable? What projections can be made for the coming decades and what actions taken to promote ageing well in Europe? How to avoid common mistakes in eldercare? What preventive measures can be taken to preserve the most vulnerable ones’ autonomy? How can we bring together all the relevant actors?
These are the questions we wish to address
And this is what we will do on that day, with the help of high level representatives of the Council of Europe, the European Union and the Commission, the WHO and the OECD, with highly experienced geriatricians, sociologists and EHPAD (residential establishments for dependent elderly people in France) director engaged in pilot projects with local authorities. We will also hear journalists who have produced reference books and television reports. NGOs will be very present through many of these stakeholders.
