The long term care and the whole social sector is dependent on many things but there is one pillar more important than all the others – and that is human work, human time, human approach, a touch. In other words, the most important part is the workforce.

The caregivers, social workers, nurses, technical and other staff – people who go to work every day not to become rich but to help others to live their lives in dignity.

WORKFORCE IN LONG TERM CARE IN EUROPE is the topic of the EAN European Congress and the LARES National Congress. A very current topic because when I ask our members across Europe “What is the main risk, problem, challenge in long term care for elderly today and in future?”, I get almost a unanimous answer – the WORKFORCE.

Our joint goal is not only to discuss this important issue with colleagues and experts from Europe and other continents but also to come up with solutions, to show and share good practices, examples and to bring new ideas.

The congress will also be a great opportunity to meet other people, to see old friends, to make new partnerships and to get a lot of information and experience.

Come and join us in ALICANTE and be a part of this unique event in the European long-term care!
