Fédération Nationale Avenir et Qualité de Vie des Personnes Agées
Since 1991, FNAQPA is one of the leading french organizations of the gerontology area. Specialized in the Elders issues, FNAQPA gathers both administrators of nursing homes and home services. This therefore gives us a global vision of the national ageing challenges.
FNAQPA is representing and is defending its members' interest within various national organizations :
We're also acting within regional and local organizations and working with a network of FNAQPA ambassadors all around the country.
Our mission is to contribute to the quality evolution of the elders health care. Quality management is therefore a very high commitment and concern for us.
Faithfully to this mission, FNAQPA has written a quality guide (QUALIPASS) in order to allow directors to reinforce the level of quality within their organizations.
Thanks to this precious tool, our members can develop better services for their Elders..
In order to increase its action, FNAQPA attends many professional events, like exhibitions, national meetings...
We also take part of television debates and contribute to national and local newspapers reports.
Our wish is to give as many information as we can to our members, so that they can be updated on the latest news of the ageing area.
We are close to each national actor and for instance develop many local meetings so that each member can exchange and get useful information.
Furthermore, our Area Managers visit on a daily basis the nursing homes to keep in touch and get the real challenges the directors and their teams are facing.
Quality and ethics : that's our focus, in order to increase quality of life and of care for the Elders. We therefore have created in 1993 a training center which helps to professionalize the health manpower thanks to internal and customized trainings.
This training center has gained the ISQ OPQF International quality certificate which is a commitment of a high level of skills for those professionals.
