Social workers from The Netherlands, Lithuania and Czech Republic met in the first week of November in the Dutch seaside town of Burgh Haamstede where they were warmly welcomed by the host organization PRO WORK.
Within the KEEP UP project they got to know more about e-learning that has been created by the project partners. They have also had the opportunity for discussion and sharing experience from their daily work and so could find out what are the main similarities and differences.
An interesting part of the visit was the tour through the new modern retirement home Zierik7 in the nearby town of Zierikzee. The social were introduced to the facilities and all the modern technologies used for daily care of the clients. The tour also included a presentation of VR technology called ELDER VR used as a part of the therapy for the clients. They tried the 3D glasses and shared their feelings with us.
Last but not least we had the opportunity to take a look at VINDERDUIN (a home where 8 women with mild mental disabilities live under supervision, each has her own space, works and takes care of herself mostly alone, but also shares common spaces). This interesting project was started in 2017 and continues successfully.
The participants of this meeting gained a lot of new knowledge and experience and established new relationships that could hopefully result in further beneficial cooperation in the future.
The representatives of the partner organizations met again in Kaunas, Lithuania in March 2023. The great atmosphere during the meeting was enhanced by the fact that one phase of the project was successfully completed.
The partners agreed that the entire e-learning content has been finalized, all chapters should bring new and beneficial information for the target groups. From now on the partners have started translating the learning content to soon be able to present the e-learning in the partner languages.
