Project Newsletter – Issue 1 Digital competences’ map for care workers and older people The careNET consortium is happy to announce that based on a careful analysis, the Map of domains for common and specific digital competences for domiciliary care workers and care recipients aged 65+ years is now publicly available. The result of an analysis and description is to be published after collaborative exercises in the development process in two workshops, respectively outlining the methodological bottom up approach in relation to study the common and specific competences for the two target groups and elaborating on the map of domains of competence working with grouping and wording of the areas of competences.

Care to Care – Enabling elderly peoples’ use of ICT In careNET, we focus on social inclusion through the development of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) competences for care recipients above the age of 65 years in long term domiciliary care and care workers. Care workers’ care for elderly people goes beyond helping with cleaning, cooking and other daily tasks. Care workers need their vocational competences to be developed, competences in relation to enabling care recipients use ICT. Read more here. CareNET at the Synergy Workshop One of the great assets in the CareNET project that while it’s focus is specific, the results and the methodology used is highly interesting for other organisations and collaborations in the vocational training world or digital competence development in care. To ignite synergies and collaborations and exchange experiences, the project was recently presented at EDEN’s SYNERGY Workshop in October in Budapest. Find out about the event and its publications here. Medical tablets in the service of care workers Mobile technologies have been proved as a useful tool in the hands of care workers and care recipients since they are used in a variety of tasks related to health care issues. Mobile devices can especially improve effectively the professional life of care workers and make data more accessible. A recent survey of health care professionals and administrators has shown that 60% have used their tablet at work for at least one year, 28% for two years and 7% for three years. It is also notable that many hospitals and clinics are purchasing tablets for their workers. The question is how care workers use tablets in their work? Find out more here. How to choose a good mobile phone for the elderly? The use of mobile phone may pose problems for the elderly, but also can, significantly, improve their quality of life. Therefore “Fundación Alzheimer España” conducted a study that provides some indications that may help to choose the most suitable mobile

phone for seniors. The mobile phone, according to their study, offers important advantages for the elderly such as: the ability to automatically call someone if they have a problem; the safety that the mobile transmits to them when they are moving alone; the feeling of being safe if they are alone. Read more on the important aspects here. Co-designing ICT concepts with older people: a legacy of the Sus-IT project The Sus-IT project ran from 2009 until 2012 with the aim of helping older people to use information technologies for a better and more independent future. During the life of the project, the barriers to the sustained and effective use of ICTs by older people were investigated and a range of solutions that combined both technology and social context were explored.
