"CarerSupport"

Integrated platform for informal carers' Training, Tele-consulting and Collaboration

AAL Programme

The Ambient Assisted and Living (AAL) Programme is a funding activity running from 2008 to 2013, with the aim of enhancing the quality of life of older people and strengthening the industrial base in Europe through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Therefore, the AAL Programme is an activity that operates in the field of services and actions to enable the active ageing among the population.

Objectives

CarerSupport aims at reducing the fragmentation of existing care service models for informal carers introducing an integrated ICT platform which will serve as a single entry point to a wide range of services including, but not limited to: (i) information provided services, (ii) training services, (iii) collaboration services, (iv) psychological support services, and (v) tele-consulting.

Standards

CarerSupport will leverage the W3C Privacy Preferences Project (P3P) standard, in order to express privacy practices in a format that can be retrieved automatically and interpreted easily by user agents (i.e. client applications),  to allow informal carers to be informed of the platform’s practices (in both machine and human-readable formats) and to automate decision-making when appropriate.
