It is an online platform that offers the possibility of training family caregivers of people with dementia, by specialized professionals, providing free material and useful information for anyone interested. It includes 4 modules with audio-visual material and educational instructions, in a simple and understandable way so that every family caregiver can follow them from their home. The nature of the educational programs is prevention and response, depending on the issue/problem that exists. The purpose of the platform is to improve the mental and physical health of both family caregivers and the people they care for.
Informal care at home is a particularly demanding, time-consuming and often neglected task by society. Caregivers who most often undertake this task alone without external help and specialized knowledge are burdened not only financially but also psychologically. Through the platform we will try to bridge this gap that exists between professional and informal care, giving some supplies so that they can cope better with their work while maintaining their own mental well-being
Developed by the non-profit organization InterMediaKT as a result of the Word of Difference 2021 program, which is funded by the Vodafone Foundation, and the educational material comes from the charitable association Frodizo.
