The project is a response to the Europe wide need to provide sustainable and dignified care for older people at home and in residential, municipal and hospital settings.
The network will look in detail at how older people currently experience care, how they can be supported to live well and how technology, gender, workforce pressures and institutional factors can impact experiences of dignity and well-being. INNOVATEDIGNITY-ITN will research new ways of engaging with older people to shape digital developments, will examine new kinds of care delivery, including long term residential care and rapid transitions from acute hospital care to home, gender imbalances and workforce sustainability to create new forms of care activities that include, participatory models and co-design with older people in response to the growing lack of sustainability in older person care and evidence of current care failings.
