Home-based care for elderly supported

The Programme targets older persons (aged 60 and older) with specific vulnerabilities, as well as formal and informal caregivers at home, if any. It considers the restoration, promotion and maintenance of maximum comfort, performance and health assistance for the elderly. The Programme also includes a variety of activities, such as nursing care, daily-life assistance, help in housekeeping, housework and meal preparation—helping with health-care activities, providing assistants with the appropriate information and skills, etc. It aims to secure safe, comprehensive, coordinated and multidisciplinary care, ensuring that older persons are placed at the centre of the care plan by treating them with dignity and respect and providing informed care that comply with the Human Rights-based Approach and the Do No Harm Principle.
