The Interreg 2 Seas project EMPOWERCARE combines partners with expertise in health technology, social cohesion solutions & integrated workforce approaches, and local organisations with access to the target population (65+ and 50+ with at least one chronic condition). All these partners have one goal in common: empowering both individuals and communities to manage their own care and tackle isolation and loneliness.
EMPOWERCARE will go in search of a medical model that is not deficit. Instead, the project partners will focus on using technology and local services to keep older people active, healthy and motivated.
The project partners will detect and tackle current gaps in the care system and build learning networks, enabling both professionals and families to share expertise and best practices.
By harnessing skills and expertise of local people and by co-creating innovations, EMPOWERCARE will have a lasting impact and make a real difference in individual lives and communities. The PRoF consortium is happy to be part of this project, since EMPOWERCARE is fully in line with the PRoF approach of joining forces across sectors and industries to create visions for the future.
