CARESS: seCtor skills for elderly home care - An integRatEd framework for domiciliary healthcare SkillS development
Demographic ageing is one of the most serious challenges Europe is facing. Better care and sustainability of health services calls for innovative ways to address the needs of the elderly. Supporting homecare, i.e. care provided by professionals within users' own homes, has been identified by Eurpoean Commission as a possible solution.
Information gathered through the initial analysis of the context will be organized and systematized in a EU framework for VET in the field of homecare. Than national pilots will be designed and implemented in 3 countries, targeting different HCCPs, allowing for the validation of the framework. Pilots will include different educational methods and will be based both on formal (presence learning and e-learning) and on non-formal/informal learning.
The CARESS Consortium will include 11 full partners from Italy, Spain and Finland and an umbrella organization. Three associated partners from Italy and UK will provide contributions and feedbacks to the project.
