The Information Centre on Long-term Care Charter at the German Centre of Gerontology was established in December 2009 until June 2012 by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth with the objective to support further improvements in the quality of long-term care and assistance for the elderly. The Information Centre was the follow-up project of the Co-ordinating Office Long-term Care. Its core activities were to further disseminate the Charter of Rights for People in Need of Long-Term Care and Assistance and to support its implementation process.

The Information Centre on Long-term Care Charter provided support and advice to health professionals and the general public regarding the Long-term Care Charter and its implementation. Moreover, the Information Centre supported the Ministry in organizing public events addressing long-term care and support for the elderly. At these meetings, workshops and conferences practitioners, interest groups, transfer institutions and representatives of science and research had the opportunity to gather information and discuss new solutions.
