The aim of the project is to extend the knowledge base around coping with older persons loneliness and to develop a training package for nurses and other health care professionals who currently have limited or no training in how to cope with older persons affected by existential loneliness provide qualified and integrative care to this vulnerable target group. The training material to be adopted across Europe, was developed by using a transnational project approach, a collection of good practice and pedagogical guidelines that take into account the European social and cultural diversity in various healthcare facilities for older people.

By increasing knowledge and awareness about these aspects among partners and their networks, the project also promoted a broader health and social dialogue about the need to have adequate training on dealing with loneliness among older people in order to provide better patient care.
