The Association of Care Service Providers (COPAS) has reacted to the recently announced changes by the government.

COPAS welcomes the government's new recommendations for retirement homes, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities.

The association says it is pleased to have been able to amend a first version of the text submitted to the Standing Committee of the Elderly set up by the Chamber of Deputies following the publication of the Waringo report.

In addition, COPAS has prepared two other documents for its members. The first is aimed at managers of retirement and nursing homes as well as assisted living facilities, while the second is aimed at managers of day centres.

The documents are supposed to provide some general guidelines on how to implement the measures
