The European Commission's Joint Research Center (JRC) has partnered with EUROCARERS to launch a new online database of digital services for carers of older people. This new tool offers access to 78 good practices of digital services for older care at home, which the JRC gathered and that EUROCARERS, the European network representing informal carers and their organisations, helped make available to all.
The database, which is hosted on the EUROCARERS website, constitutes a valuable tool for EU Member States and all stakeholders involved in long-term care, including practitioners. The database contains information needed to develop, implement and transfer such services. Moreover, this database aims to raise awareness among policy-makers and care-responsible organisations about the benefits of these services for the sustainability of the care system, the welfare of the European population, and to create growth and jobs.
