Proyecto Housing Care
Reframing skills for senior carers through the use of technology.
WHAT IS THE OBJECTIVE?
For both formal and informal caregivers, this initiative aims to empower them to be able to make decisions and apply theknowledge of technology acquired in training in the areas that suit them best.
TECSOS participates in the Housing Care project together with 6 other European entities.
WHAT DOES IT CONSIST OF?
European reports in recent years related to the care of the elderly and people in situations of dependency have clearly highlighted a major problem in these areas. The situation of carers is not sustainable if the same model is maintained in the future, there are no jobs to fill and there are fewer and fewer people available, there is little knowledge about technology, carers often carry out their jobs under job insecurity situations, among other indicators.
One of the keys that were detected that could improve the situation is that technology formation courses may lead to a point where caregivers are well trained in the use of technologies and can also rely on them in their day-to-day work to improve their job position, improve their mental and physical health and also better help the people they care for.
This is where the Housing Care project comes into play, hand in hand with the consortium of 6 European entities and the TECSOS Foundation as experts in social technology.
