Regional Carers Day in Emilia Romagna
The Italian Carers Day initiative, started by WE DO partner ANS in 2011 has now become Regional. Emilia Romagna Regional Administration has indeed decided to formally support it and promote it all across the regional territory. This is a big step towards awareness rising and recognition of the foundamental role played by informal carers to support the quality of life and care of dependent people as well as an opportunity for professionals to hear the voice of carers and include their point of view in policy planning
The Carers Day website contains all the presentations and videos of the events, unfortunately in Italian only. Even if you don't speak Italian, though, you can still see what has been done enjoying the pictures of the photo album.
