European Association for Directors and Providers of Long-Term Care Services for the Elderly

The E.D.E. is an international umbrella organisation representing national associations for directors and providers of long-term care services in Europe.One of its major tasks is to promote the exchange of information and experience among its members and facilitate mutual learning. As professionals we seek to improve the quality of care and supervision.To do so it is important to look beyond our own "national noses". Common training standards, reciprocal visits and observation, congresses and symposia all foster professionalism among care home directors and a greater understanding of the various forms of care and assistance. Creating humane living and working conditions in our homes is a vision toward which we are mutually striving in the E.D.E.
