New supranational eff orts and strategies are necessary for elderly and disabled care in the future, to improve the quality of life of the elderly and disabled. To enable the national associations represented by the E.D.E. to actively and proactively infl uence developments, the E.D.E. conveys among other things the following values and standards of conduct for directors:

European Charter of the rights and freedoms of older persons accommodated in homes (Maastricht, 1993)
