The European Network on Elderly Inter-cultural Care (ENIEC)

The European Network on Elderly Inter-cultural Care (ENIEC) is a Dutch – Danish initiative that has been going since 2007 but has only recently come to our attention.

The network is a non-profit membership association for ‘enthusiastic professionals engaged in care for elderly migrants in Europe’.

Their website states their aims as:

  • to create an informal platform of exchanging ideas and experiences cross borders in today’s Europe
  • to secure that European elderly with a foreign ethnic background can live in an environment of tolerance, intercultural understanding and respect for their needs and for their cultural background

You can follow the network’s activities via their website, facebook or twitter.
