Positive Ageing Toolkit
The toolkit will offer invaluable insights, practical tips, and resources to empower individuals aged 65 and above in enhancing their psychological resilience, social engagement, and overall well-being. Tailored specifically for older adults, it will provide a diverse array of strategies and tools adaptable to various needs, cultural backgrounds, and social contexts. Caregivers and trainers working with the elderly will also find the toolkit
invaluable, as it equips them with skills to enhance their own well-being, foster resilience, and forge positive connections with older individuals.
Positive Ageing Toolkit objectives include:
Enabling older adults to bolster their well-being and resilience in navigating life’s challenges, such as loneliness and transitions associated with ageing.
Crafting a comprehensive toolkit brimming with strategies and resources aimed at enhancing psychological resilience, social integration, and overall well-being among older individuals.
Empowering caregivers and adult educators with the necessary skills to improve their own well-being, resilience, and ability to establish positive rapport with elderly individuals.
Training programme for Caregivers and Adult Educators
The Training Programme for Caregivers and Adult Educators will present a great opportunity to empower professionals with the knowledge and skills essential for enhancing the wellbeing and active ageing of the elderly. Grounded in the principles of positive psychology, this comprehensive programme will offer a dynamic learning experience tailored to address the multifaceted challenges encountered by caregivers. Through meticulously crafted modules and interactive sessions, participants will delve into practical strategies aimed at fostering effective communication, cultivating empathy, and instilling positive transformations in the lives of older adults.
The programme’s objectives include:
Engaging learning modules and succinct micro-lessons, including multimedia formats such as concise videos and illustrative infographics, to ensure accessibility and depth of understanding.
Enriching Train-the-Trainers Master Training Workshops, where seasoned Adult Educators from each partner will converge to disseminate knowledge and insights in subsequent pilot testing workshops across diverse locales.
Comprehensive pilot testing sessions with a minimum of 15 caregivers/Adult Educators in each partner country, accommodating tailored approaches that reflect nuanced regional contexts and participant preferences.
Training course for 65+ adults and eLearning space
The Training course for 65+ adults and eLearning space is set to embark on a transformative journey, aligning with our core project objectives to empower older adults aged 65 and above, enhancing their health, wellbeing, and societal engagement. At the heart of this initiative lies the creation of an innovative eLearning space, tailored to equip the elderly with essential digital skills, fostering connectivity and combatting feelings of isolation. Through a curated selection of learning modules and micro-learning elements, we aim to enrich the lives of our elderly participants, nurturing positive experiences, resilient mindsets, and meaningful connections within their communities.
The Specific Objectives of the eLearning spce include:
Developing a comprehensive Training Programme tailored to the needs of elderly adults, providing invaluable resources for enhancing both wellbeing and digital literacy.
Creating a dynamic eLearning space, accessible across various devices, equipped with gamified learning resources and comprehensive support materials for caregivers.
Pilot testing of the Training Programme and eLearning space, culminating in refinements guided by participant feedback, thus ensuring efficacy and user satisfaction.
The AgeingWell project is a collaboration of 7 European organisations dedicated to support adult education and learning.
