A care home in Belgium is getting help to improve working conditions for staff

‘Care for care’ is the name of an ESF project in Belgium that seeks to improve working conditions at care homes and sheltered housing for old people. As part of this initiative the ‘Molenstee’ old people’s care centre in the municipality of Kampenhout in Flanders will work with the human resources organisation ‘Diverscity’.

Together, they will investigate working practices and adapt them in ways that reduce work pressures on staff and improve their effectiveness in caring for their elderly residents. The project involves all care-home staff from senior management downwards. Participation is open to all care homes in the region and Molenstee is one of the first to be selected to take part.
