In the Versatile Telehealth Services of the Future project, we advance telehealth expertise and its future possibilities in services supporting the home living of the elderly.

In the project, we investigate what remote care and services will mean in the future and determine the kind of expertise and orientation needed to meet future challenges. Additionally, we aim to anticipate the future needs for expertise in remote care and services and to support the career development of home care workers.

We anticipate the future needs for expertise in remote care and services and enhance the opportunities for home care workers to continue in their roles by shaping their career paths. A specific goal is to strengthen the skills of elderly, retired, and immigrant background workers, as well as those workers facing challenges with their work capacity.

Together with Metropolia University of Applied Sciences, we are developing remote home care and services with the employees of the Vantaa and Kerava as well as the OmaHäme welfare regions. The development activities also involve the cooperation partners and networks of remote care and services within these welfare regions.

Target Group

The target group of the project includes remote home care service organizers and workers from the Vantaa-Kerava welfare region and the Kanta-Häme (OmaHäme) welfare region. These individuals are responsible for implementing and developing remote care as part of home care and services for the elderly, in the new context following the social and health care reform and the establishment of welfare regions.

Target Area

Kanta-Häme and Uusimaa
