Course Description

  • Housing Care: Using Reframed Skills for Senior Carers, arises with the intention of improving the quality of life of dependent seniors through the upskilling and training in new technologies for their care workers.
  • The care sector, as the years go by, will become larger and more important since as the data shows, the population over 65 years of age is going to increase dramatically. Therefore, the percentage of people in need of specialised personal care, adapted to the current social situation will also increase. ​
  • The Housing Care Project aims to offer a new perspective on care, adapted to the present day and whose main driver for change is the adoptation of new technologies both inside and outside the home of seniors. ​​
