The Project

The main goal of this project is to develop a European study program for social and health care education providers and students to improve their basic knowledge, skills and competence in supporting aging population’s empowerment in order to lead healthy and active life. The Lucky you project is based on the Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment’s (CGA) five items. Those items form the scientific basis of the Study Program to be designed.

In the long run, increasing the knowledge and competencies on empowering elderly people among social and health care education providers and students will increase healthy and active years to all European aging people.

The way to achieve this goal in this project is to closely cooperate and intensively work together with the project partners. Five meetings around the five CGA items (Social, Functionality, Cognition, Depression and Nutrition Field) will be held in 24 months’ period of time in addition to the Kick-off and Final Meetings. The participating countries each take care of one of the items. The items are selected for the partner countries according to their previous knowledge, research work and practical experience respectively. Practical teaching material and methods for the Study Program will be developed, too.
