Activating and Guiding the Engagement of Seniors through social media

1. Project Start & Setup

The overall goal of Phase 1 is to put in place the organizational and procedural framework in order to guarantee smooth implementation of the research. Manuals supporting the training package are distributed to both English and Italian carers, who receive training to ensure their familiarity with relevant IT hardware and software, internet resources and sites, and aspects of pedagogy and care-delivery relevant to maximizing the social-health benefits of using the Easy PC model. Carer representatives from Somerset Care and co-ordinators of the UK research have traveled to Italy to undertake a training session for the Italian carers and researchers.
