STAY-IN-TOUCH aims to alleviate loneliness through support for social participation, among older adults using home care services. In STAY-IN-TOUCH, we cooperate with home care organisations, to develop and test a work model that is created to function in the home care context. The work model guides the home care staff step by step, in recognizing lonelieness and linking to individually relevant social engagement. The project is a part of the research programme Future Care, which is a collaboration between Umeå University, Karolinska Institutet and KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
