The professional profiling of elderly carers and the competency assessment tool were developed within the Tenderness for Life project with Erasmus+ funding. The Elderly care worker new job profile and competences tool framework includes key exercises to measure elderly care workers’ performance and skills assessment (with correspondence to behavioural descriptors) to measure its level of proficiency. This provides care providers key information to manage their care workers and to identify training, support and supervision needs in the process of delivering of more dignified care to older adults.
