EU-Programme: Erasmus+, KA2, Strategic Partnerships for Adult Education

Duration: December 2021 – April 2024
Domestic care involves practitioners hired to assist the elderly, persons with disabilities, and recovering patients in live-in or live-out arrangements.
The advent of the COVID-19 epidemic and the subsequent health care crisis, however, have magnified the need for care workers at home, as well as the set of roles and responsibilities expected to be performed by them.
Docup aims to equip domestic care workers (employed or seeking employment) with a mix of care, transversal and attitudinal skills to ensure resilient employment pathways as well as to contribute towards advancing the regulatory environment and working conditions pertaining to domestic care (at the institutional level).
