Our
project

Born from the collaborative culture of social learning that promotes knowledge-sharing to benefit all, the ATHOME project breaks down the barriers between various sectors: professional training, higher education, associations. Paramedic and social students, teachers and researchers collaborating with home helpers, jobseekers, trainers and trainees.

The two major lines of work are the development of professional skills both for people without qualifications and for students, and the quality strengthening regarding the care of the elderly at home. The tools created in permanent interaction between professionals in the field and academics are aimed at non-paramedic professionals working at the homes of the elderly. Their purpose is to secure first-level care and reinforce this job’s attraction, considered as little gratifying although absolutely essential to the homecare system.  The intellectual productions that will be created will enable jobseekers or home helpers in office from the 4 partner countries to validate a base of interdisciplinary skills proper to the home help sector. The validation of this base of interdisciplinary skills proposed in the AEFA Guide for professionals in office or with a training project or in a career change will be valid in the 4 partner countries. The results of the impact studies will allow to spread these tools to the other countries of the European Union.
