M-CARE (http://www.mcare-project.eu) is a project partially funded by the European Commission which aims to provide the training framework and (mobile) content to become personal caregivers for people with disabilities and older people.
To fine-tune our work, we are conducting a survey among current or potential personal care givers (PCGs) in Turkey, Bulgaria, Belgium, Germany and Greece. In addition, we also contact people with disabilities (PwD), older people, family members of PwD, policy makers, training/VET centres and care centres in order to: • identify the needs of the project's end-users (personal caregivers for people with disabilities and/or older people) and beneficiaries (PwD, older people, family members, stakeholders). • obtain a good perception of the need for adjustments in existing PCG training practices to enable the trainees (users) and beneficiaries to achieve personal accomplishment and satisfaction. • define a set of learning activities appropriate to and usable across a range of identified user needs. • gain familiarity with the nature and potential value of adjustments in training methods and in learning strategies to meet the needs of end-users and beneficiaries. • identify and highlight similarities and differences between national contexts in the partner countries.
We would like to thank you for your time in participating in this survey.
