Social innovations in long term care
could you please disseminate the following partner serach:
The Regional Development Agency of Northern Primorska Nova Gorica, Slovenia is looking for project partners within the project proposal Social innovations in long term care programmes in ageing societies.
The project is addressing marginality, inequality and social exclusion in remote, urban and peripheral areas by integrating policies affecting the quality of life and well-being of citizens; Improving accessibility to services of general interest specifically for vulnerable segments of population (elderly.) also by promoting public private partnerships (e.g. social enterprises, non-profit sector, public bodies etc.).
There is no "one size fits all" policy response; however, in all cases the response will require governments, social partners, non-profit organisations and individual citizens to adapt and find new solutions.” The Council invited the European Commission and Member States to ‘take measures to develop policies for more integrated health and social care systems for older persons and persons in vulnerable situations’.
The project will analyse how the need for long-term care can be confronted through prevention, rehabilitation and the creation of more age-friendly environments, and by developing more efficient ways of delivering care. The widespread shortage of a health and long-term care workforce should also be addressed through incentives for boosting employment in ‘white coat jobs’ and improving working conditions in the Alpine area. Accessible and affordable transport and adapted housing opportunities also allow older and disabled people to remain in charge of their own lives for as long as possible and reduce the need for long-term care.
Thank you and kind regards, Jasmina Nikić
