European Ageing Network​

The European Ageing Network (E.A.N.) groups more than 10.000 care providers across the European continent. Members represent all types of organisations and individuals active for older persons and all types of ownership including for profit, not-for-profit and governmental organisations. It is their vision and mission to improve the quality of life for older persons and support them in making each day a better day for by providing high quality housing, services and care. 

The European Ageing Network (E.A.N.) is present in 28 European countries. With EAHSA well represented in North-West Europe and EDE in the South-East, the combination makes of the European Ageing Network a truly pan-European organisation.  E.A.N. does not stand alone in pursuing its vision, values and mission. It is affiliated with the Global Ageing Network (GAN), a global network with its office in Washington DC. E.A.N. and GAN bring together experts from around the world, lead education initiatives and provide a place for innovative ideas in senior care to be born. They pave the way to improve best practices in aged care so that older people everywhere can live healthier, stronger, more independent lives.

The members of the European Ageing Network (E.A.N.) are servicing over 1 million older people in Europe.  Longevity is one of the biggest achievements of modern societies. Europeans are living longer than ever before and this pattern is expected to continue due to unprecedented medical advances and improved standards of living. By 2020, a quarter of the Europeans will be over 60 years of age. Combined with low birth rates, this will bring about significant changes to the structure of European society, which will impact on our economy, social security and health care systems, the labour market and many other spheres of our lives.
