Supporting family care givers

The Project aimed to support family carer of dependent persons through training and certification of knowledge, competencies and skills. The project transfered the tools from the DependenTIC project (which have been successfully carried out in 23 municipalities in Aranjuez-District in Spain) to Portugal, Italy and Austria.

ZSI undertook an analysis of how family carers can be best supported in their outstanding contribution to society. Specifically, the aims of the study were to:

  • explore the socio-economic profile and situation of family carers;
  • examine the existing approaches and services for family carers and the carers’ satisfaction with these reliefs;
  • provide examples of good practice and/or innovative examples in the various fields of supporting carers.
