These new found careers are becoming the norms, as great number of people are being retired daily.

Why a European Strategy to combat
Elder Abuse against Older Women (EUSTaCEA)?

by Anne-Sophie PARENT, AGE Director

Our EUSTaCEA project aims at developing a European Strategy to combat elder abuse against older women which will include a European Charter and toolkit to be used as awareness raising tools by AGE members and partners to prevent abuse against older women and vulnerable older men, and to promote quality guidelines for eldercare services. Our project has evolved a lot since it started in December 2008. The first year of the project was devoted to the drafting of the European Charter of rights and responsibilities of older people in need of long-term care and assistance. The work has now started on the accompanying toolkit which will explain how the rights included in the Charter can be implemented.
