Community-Based Home Care for Older People

In April 2010, when 52 National Societies in the Europe Zone gathered in Vienna for the 8th European Red Cross Red Crescent Conference, they collectively committed to moving forward in preventing, mitigating and addressing the vulnerabilities that may affect older people in their national contexts. The guidelines focus on a number of areas of particular interest to the home care of older people, providing recommendations on how program managers, volunteer managers and supervisors can recruit, manage and support volunteers in various situations. The current thinking about ageing and the care of older people serves as background information, and is followed by what Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies can do to ensure that the community-based home care program is staffed effectively with trained volunteers who are in possession of specific information about the care of the older person, and are aware of their rights and responsibilities within the program.
