European recommendations

After the national workshops, a European workshop with representatives from Red Cross National Society partners, national authorities and service providers was held on 1st and 2nd June, 2015 in Bulgaria. Research results were presented, national results were compared and a set of European recommendations were formulated that are relevant to all participating countries. Please see the report here:

The recommendations have been summarised and incorporated into five key themes:

  • Improving cooperation and coordination among stakeholders

  • Raising awareness and providing information
  • Encouraging community involvement
  • Offering psychosocial support focusing on the needs of older people
