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
