WHOLE: Wellbeing and Healthy Choices for Older Adults and their Carers
The WHOLE project's main objective is to promote active and healthy ageing through physical and nutritional training for frail seniors and elderly people at home, using as a mean the personalised home care services provided to them by formal and informal carers.
This project aims to propagate an education system based on enquiry, experimentation, observation, and reasoning rather than on rote learning and the passing of examinations based on it. We want to popularize this method among a wider audience of educators, students, parents, and scientists; to spread its use to more countries, schools, and teachers; and to expose more children and parents to learning using this methodology. Our objective is based on the belief that this approach to learning is vital in a rapidly changing world and in a Europe that needs to create jobs, innovate, and become more socially and commercially entrepreneurial.
50+ Childcare is an EU funded project that aims to establish a European model for courses training child carers and particularly women aged 50+ as a means of activating employment opportunities for this often underemployed group. A large part of the project will be researching current systems in Ireland for childcare training and trading best practice with other partners within the project consortium. The partners include organisations from Poland, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary and Italy.
