Domestic (home-based) care involves practitioners hired to assist the elderly, persons with disabilities, and recovering patients in live-in or live-out arrangements. Changing care practices within families, demographic changes, and the growth of the elderly population have rendered domestic care services steadily necessary in EU countries. The advent of the COVID-19 epidemic and the subsequent health care crisis, however, have magnified the need for care workers at home, as well as the set of roles and responsibilities expected to be performed by them.
The project aims to:
a) equip domestic care workers (employed or seeking employment) with a mix of care, transversal
and attitudinal skills to ensure resilient employment pathways, and
b) contribute towards advancing the regulatory
environment and working conditions pertaining to domestic care (at the institutional level).
