ENIEC-member Lola Casal-Sanchez is involved as PhD in the InCare project. Lola: ‘The InCARE project (co-funded by the European Union) team is inviting you to share your point of view through a general population survey on experiences, attitudes, and expectations on long-term care. We also hope for your support in disseminating the survey (currently available in 8 languages) to ensure as many people as possible are given the opportunity to express their views.’
What is this survey about?
Lola: ‘We would like to understand how people view care for older people with support needs. How do they want those close to them or themselves to be looked after, should they need it? What are their experiences with receiving or providing care? And what are their expectations for the future? The purpose of this study is to raise awareness of the challenges faced by older people with care needs and their families, and to advocate for policies that can support them.’
How can you contribute?
Lola asks you:
• If you are able and willing to contribute, you can answer the survey through directly here. This should not take more than 15 minutes of your time.
• I would be grateful if you could disseminate the survey as widely as possible within your own network.
Ensuring all those who need it have access to high quality, affordable long-term care, in particular home care and community-based services, is a major challenge throughout Europe and at the global level. Policy debates are ongoing on how to shape long-term care systems in the future: it is essential that people are given a voice and this survey will contribute to it.
Lola thanks you very warmly in advance for your cooperation and remain at your disposal for any further information.
