(TRIESTE) – CrossCare represents an “observation lab of the needs of older people and the evolution of the dimensions of active ageing”. This was pointed out by Orietta Antonini, president of the Social Cooperative Itaca, during the mid-term conference held in the Predonzani Room of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region Palace in Trieste on the 28th of September. “Elderly care is a delicate moment that often results in institutionalization solutions that CrossCare aims to overcome. The project sees the nursing home as a place of interception of social needs on the territory”.
Supporting self-employment and entrepreneurship for disadvantaged people when local public and private bodies act in close cooperation proved to be possible. This was the focus of the Final Info Day of the Ctrl+Alt+Enterprise that took place at the Council Chamber of the former Province of Pordenone in Largo San Giorgio 12, at 9am.
From the 14th to the 18th of May, the city of Pordenone hosted the 7th transnational meeting of the European project Ctrl+Alt+EnterPrise, led by Azienda Sanitaria No. 5 (lead partner) together with the local partners ITACA, the Municipality of Pordenone and SOFORM Scarl. At the headquarters of the Well Fare Foundation in via Luigi Sturzo 8, participants took part in five intense training days that aimed at increasing the self-employment opportunities of the disadvantaged people selected and involved in the project trial – related to O5. The final results of the training sessions will be presented in June in Pordenone during the final info day.

The Gentlecare training course addressing socio-health operators involved in the CrossCare project will start on the 11th and 18th of April at Odu Koper; a second appointment is foreseen on the 24th and 29th of May.
