How to solve one of the biggest problems of the EU in 21st century?
"The measure of society is the way its strongest members treat its weakest ones"
John Paul II
Who are we?
The European Care Foundation has been established as a self-funding entity; our purpose is to organize and execute care for people, needing special help, in the European Union and to stimulate senior citizens to activity.
The idea to set up the Foundation originated from the desire to help others. The founders have worked in different agencies and charities for many years and experience they gained there has resulted in creating the European Care Foundation for senior citizens’ welfare.
We have over 4 years' experience in helping senior citizens and the disabled in Germany and Poland. So far over 50 volunteers (all of them experienced carers) have helped almost 70 people! Now our care assistants are helping people with disabilities and the elderly in the UK as well.
Our volunteers’ job is to help the people they care for with everyday life. They live in their houses, help them prepare meals, get dressed, clean the house, they do shopping for them etc.
All our volunteers have good English language skills, they are non smokers, with no criminal record and they hold a current driving licence. All our carers have medical insurance, travel insurance; they are also insured against accidents and civil liability.
Nowadays the EU faces an obsolescent society. The amount of money we spend on everyday care for the senior citizens and the disabled increases each year. The European Care Foundation’s purpose is to create new methods of solving this problem, that will respect the subjectivity of the people requiring help and the existing economic restrictions.
