Brief description of the project

The implementation of the project will improve local government social care services and infrastructure through a new approach to home care and self-help measures, thus providing comfort for ageing. In the framework of the project, theoretical training, cooperation and exchange of experience of mobile team specialists will be organised, as well as a training trip to the Falun region in Sweden. A manual for mobile team employees will be developed and specialised equipment for the provision of mobile brigades is purchased – four specialised vehicles and equipment sets. The target group of the project is 45 thousand elderly residents in the border region of Latvia-Lithuania – the former Daugavpils and Rezekne, as well as Utena and Molet (Moletai).

Within the framework of the project, it is planned to prepare 40 mobile team specialists and improve special equipment for mobile brigades for the provision of social service in four districts (Daugavpils, Rezekne, Utenas and Molet) and one municipality in local government (Ilūkste) in the border region of Latvia-Lithuania, thus offering home care to the seniors living in the 1300 project territory.
