Training of family members and guardians for inclusion of ageing adults with disabilities
Inclu-ageing is a project which aims to promote a real inclusion of disabled ageing adults. In fact, they can experience new needs and dynamics, which don’t just influence their life, but also their social circles, such as those related to family and legal guardians. This is not connected just to the relationship with them, but to the new changes and challenges to address on both sides. In fact, getting older is a complex part of life, not just ageing people can be disoriented, but also who takes care of them. That’s why this project wants to develop non-formal educational tools to support both to move in the inclusion way, providing concrete key actions and good practices.
It will also create interactive material, like spot videos with tips about specific topics, with the objective to raise knowledge and awareness about responsibilities and roles of who takes care of ageing adults with disabilities.
In fact, the project aims to pay attention to various ageing aspects, such as lifestyle, physical skills and health dimensions, stress challenges and limitations. A great value is also given to the social support network, the implementation of socialization activities and the relationship with the peer group
