The STAR project will create an educational platform with associated methodology and content for improving the skills of carers for People with Dementia. The content will be based on leading dementia expertise and will be distributed in a three-layer online community structure. In particular, new technology-based interventions for monitoring and supporting will be covered by the educational modules. Internet and TV-based distribution will be supported. This will enable skilling and re-skilling for appropriate professional care for persons with mild dementia, even when still living in their homes and with their family. STAR started in December 2010 and will complete in November 2013. Training pilots in UK, Netherlands, Sweden and Italy will begin in September 2012. Vocational training organizations, care providers and dementia associations in all countries are welcome to contact us for possible collaboration on making online courses available in more languages.
