Long-term care at home

 Type: Conference
 Line of Knowledge: Planning and models of care
 Location: Facultad de Ciencias Sociales y del Trabajo de la Universidad de Zaragoza

Addressing long-term care at home is a challenging subject to analyse and study due to the possibilities of reformulating the conceptual framework, based on comprehensive models centred on users with ecosystemic approaches adapted to the territory.

It is increasingly important to consider the advances that are being developed in long-term care, in order to respond to the needs and concerns of people who want to remain at home, promoting, maintaining and preserving their autonomy as much as possible.

The aim of the conference, organised by Atenzia, is to provide a meeting place for the transmission of knowledge and experiences in the promotion of long-term care at home, which implies a change of outlook in all the professional profiles and services involved.
