EASPD Policy seminar 2012

We attended the EASPD policy seminar “You cared for me, I care for you: solidarity between generations and abilities” on 5 December 2012 in Brussels. This event discussed care for seniors with disabilities and looked at the conditions that allow family members of different generations to care for each other — thus making intergenerational solidarity possible.
The seminar aspired to identify the main challenges preventing intergenerational solidarity from happening and the policy conditions that need to be in place to support families in their care responsibilities. The event ensured engagement with policy makers in this discussion and phrase proposals on how to improve on the current situation and realise a society that allows people to care for each other, knowing that the right safety nets are in place.
