Monitoring Report on The Human Rights situation of Older Persons in Belgian Residential Care Settings.
Within the framework of the ENNHRI project ‘Human Rights of Older Persons and Long-Term Care’, Unia carried out monitoring in a number of residential care centres in Belgium in relation to these rights. The results of this research are discussed in this report: ‘Monitoring report on The Human Rights situation of Older Persons in Belgian Residential Care Settings’. During this ENNHRI monitoring a random sample was made in 9 residential care centres. The observations with regard to human rights should therefore by no means be generalised.
