Welcome from President Natalie Briffa Farrugia

Dear EAHSA members and other visitors to the website,

Welcome to EAHSA website. This site is designed to provide information about our mission and mandate. It is a tool that will try to create initiatives, present actions and spread information related to the care of older persons, to service providers and also to service users themselves.

The Executive Board is always interested to hear from members, and others interested in the activities of EAHSA. Please feel free to contact any of us with your queries and interests in ways to promote ‘best practices’ to the people we serve.

EAHSA Board of Directors



EAHSA organizes a bi-annual European conference. This time the conference is hosted by ActiZ, the Dutch association for residential and home care organizations and infant and child health clinics. The members of ActiZ annually provide care for more than 2 million clients and employ around 430,000 people.

Technology and innovations can help older people to live in-dependently longer. It has also an enormous potential for helping older people to participate in society and therefore reduce the feeling of loneliness and isolation. It’s important to invest in management and leadership and build professional partnerships and relationships.


For the first time, EAHSA will recognise an outstanding organisation and an innovative facility throughout Europe. There will be TWO categories: Best facility in Europe and Best organisation in Europe. 

The IAHSA/CAST Global Tech Forum will explore actual and potential uses of technologies, including those that have strong evidence of efficacy to improve quality of life, efficient delivery of care and services and have promise of reducing costs. Recent research findings will be  reviewed that explore the relevance and effectiveness of technologies to address chronic care management and other needs associated with ageing.

EAHSA and ActiZ invites you to join us in Amsterdam to share knowledge on our pathway to the future in ageing services.
