CASA is a European project supported by the European Fund for the Integration of Third-country Nationals Community Actions.It addresses the increasing need for long term and quality care of older people and people with disabilities by facilitating and supporting the integration of third countries nationals in the EU. The aim is to improve the quality of care of people in need and help immigrants, in particular women, find better jobs and facilitate their social and economic integration into European Society.The partnership will model an Agency to marry the increasing demand for long term carers with the supply of workers from third countries. The Agency model will be tested in 3 EU Member States (Germany, Italy and Greece) with the long term objective of being transferred across the EU.
- ANCIEN - Assessing needs of care in European nations (2009-2013)
ANCIEN is a research project financed under the 7th EU Research Framework Programme. The project includes 20 partners from EU member states. It concerns the future of long-term care for the elderly in Europe. The questions we ask in ANCIEN are 1) How will need, demand, supply and use of LTC develop? 2) How do different systems of LTC perform? The project proceeds in consecutive steps of collecting and analysing information and projecting future scenarios on long term care needs, use, quality assurance and system performance. State of the art demographic, epidemiologic and econometric modelling will be used to interpret and project needs, supply and use of long term care over future time periods for different long term care systems.
