Project aim

SENSNET is aimed at creating a European Academy that will design, develop, collect, test and valorise an innovative training pathway that will be tailored to the specific needs of professionals who work with ageing people with sensory impairment (vision and/or hearing).

Thus, the main target group of the project are workers at day care centres for older people, geriatric social workers, care workers for seniors, therapists for seniors, GPs, nurses, home-visiting care workers and other professionals that provide services to support ageing people with sensory impairments.

The target group of the project are these professionals, whose good appropriate preparation will finally benefit ageing people with visual and/or hearing problems that due to their impairments have problems of daily living.
