Welcome to the HomeCare Platform



Here you can find educational resources to develop competencies and skills on caring for an elderly person at home.

The platform is dedicated to people who are not professional medical caregivers but play the role of the so-called a family caregiver (or an Informal Caregiver) of an elderly person who, due to age or illness, has limited possibilities in daily independent functioning.
