What will the UNIC project do?
It will develop tools to help service users, service providers and public authorities to implement a user-centred funding model in long-term care and support.
Persons with care and support needs, their families, caregivers and friends.
Long-term care service providers and staff.
Impact of the project
This project will help persons who recieve long term care and support to actively participate in organising their own support. They will be able to do this based on their will, preferences and individual needs. This will lead to improvements in
- their general health & well-being,
- personal dignity,
- control of their lives
- and the freedom of making choices.
Service providers will have to adapt and personalize their services to meet the individual needs of service users and public authorities will implement a radical funding model which will respond to the evolving needs and challenges in long-term care and support.
