Since the beginning of this year, ILC-BR works for a hospital in the Southern town of Veranópolis, providing guidance on how to turn the hospital more age-friendly.

After approval of the ethics committee, the team now started with the field research interviewing older patients and caregivers and organising group discussions with interdisciplinary teams. The group discussions were moderated by ILC-BR’s technical director Ina Voelcker and involved almost 50 staff members of the hospital. The results of this research will feed into an action plan, covering training sessions for staff and family caregivers, the introduction of new protocols and revision of existing processes as well as structural changes in the physical environment of the hospital.
