In order to improve the living conditions of persons in need of care in Germany, the German Federal Ministery for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women, and Youth and German Federal Ministery for Health and Social Security initiated the “Round Table Care” in 2003. Between 2003 and 2005, about 200 experts from associations, Federal Government, “Laender” (German states), municipalities, practice and science worked together and developed recommendations. An example of the work is the Charter of Rights for People in Need of Long-Term Care and Assistance. The Co-ordinating Office Long-term Care follows the work begun by the Round Table Care.
