With this Charter, the EUSTACEA partners seek to set up a common reference framework that can be used across the European Union to promote the wellbeing and dignity of older dependent people.
This briefing is aimed at the European Union (EU) and member states.

It also cites examples of interventions that have changed the lives of older people and those who depend on them.
