EU-funded project trains professionals working with older persons with sensory impairments

The Istituto Rittmeyer, a member of the European Association for Directors and Providers of Long-Term Care Services for the Elderly (E.D.E.), is involved in an EU-funded project aimed at training professionals working with older people with sensory impairments: the SENSNET project.

More specifically, SENSNET is developing a European Academy that will design, develop, collect, test and valorise an innovative training pathway tailored to the specific needs of professionals who provide services to support older adults with vision and/or hearing impairments in their daily activities.

As part of the project, a Methodological Guide for Online Courses has been developed together with an online training platform which provide free access to the project’s training courses for professionals.
