Responding to Heatwaves in the Older People Ecosystem

The project HOPE (Responding to Heatwaves in the Older People Ecosystem) aims to put the severe health threats of heatwaves on the agenda of the older adult service and healthcare sectors and to have an inclusive approach for the whole ecosystem by:

  •  Developing and strengthening competencies of students, informal caregivers, and professionals in older adult health, care and social sectors on better responding to the needs of older adults during heatwaves and thereby better mitigating the risks.
  • Supporting and stimulating organisations in the older adults ecosystem to apply guidelines and best practices regarding care during heatwaves.
  • Supporting local and regional authorities through developed Policy Recommendations on how to play a role in the fight against heat risks for their older inhabitants.
  •  By communicating and disseminating project results and best practices in local, regional, national, European, and international levels.
