Most older persons wish to remain in their own homes and receive there the quality, personalised, person-centred care they need, without being pushed into residential care. Yet, vocational and educational training for care professionals does not always prepare them to meet the needs of older persons in need of care and to adequately face the challenges they may encounter in their professional activity.

The CARESS Erasmus+ project has worked, over the past 3 years, on improving the quality of learning in the vocational and educational training in the field of home care.

The final event of the project, next 3 October 2018 in Brussels, will provide an overview of the gaps in skills in homecare in Europe and present CARESS' solutions to address them. It will include a presentation of the activities performed in pilots in Finland, Italy and Spain, and a policy debate that will reflect on the views of policymakers, service providers and workers.

You can register clicking here by 30 September 2018. You can consult the draft programme here.
