Caregiving and Ageing Reimagined in Europe

The main objectives of the project are to ensure improved quality of care for seniors in need, increase the numbers of new profesional caregivers (including and especially amongst the young and unemployed, positioning CARE also as a “jobs creator”) whilst improving the quality of care delivered, by defining standard protocols and a comprehensive, accessible e-based learning curriculum.
 

Objetivos

With the increasing ageing of the European population, innovative and multi-dimensional solutions are required to meet the ever increasing demand for care for the elderly. Those 85+ are the most rapidly growing of all demographic segments, and are also the most vulnerable to multiple chronic diseases as well as deteriorating conditions of skin, vision, hearing, muscle and bone mass and oral. The need for elder care is very large, even as the supply of elder caregivers is declining as against the demand. The current supply gap must be addressed with an increase in the elder caregiver workforce and it is crucial that these individuals and family caregivers are adequately educated to handle the specific challenges associated with caring for the elderly. Elder Caregiving 0n line training will meet seniors’ needs, address elder caregiving demand for families and communities, create jobs, reduce hospital and physician costs and be a driver of economic growth.
