Innovation in SOCIAL HOUSING and Home-care
Private/public partnership for innovative housing and home-care models
2 experimentations in Trieste:
-an innovative co-housing solution foresees that beneficiaries sign a formal Commitment
for Solidarity.
- the existing Montebello Project in a Public Residential Complex, testing advanced
integrated home-care and de-institutionalisation processes with the development of a
stronger community-oriented network, thanks to the commitment of volunteering
families and local associations.
Local actors involved:
Municpality of Trieste, Local Health Authority of Trieste, Regional Housing Agency, ITIS
(public social care institution), Fondazione Luchetta (community NGO)

2. Co-housing experimentation based on a
solidarity contract
Main elements:
• coexistence of different beneficiaries and different
generations;
• independence and privacy are maintained (17 private
flats) jointly with a shared commnunity spaces, with
full accessibility criteria;
• building up a supportive local network for monitoring
service and the promotion of mutual informal services
(mutual help and integrated aid);
• Participatory process (focus groups) with beneficiaries
and organizations staff for needs survey and criteria
setting for social innovation;
• set of criteria for informal care that will be included in
a Solidarity Contract.

SOME KEY RECOMMENDATIONS FROM HELPS PROJECT
-One effective form of information is participation
- it is strategic and useful to focus on the role of formal and informal
caregivers and the set of interventions and actions required to enforce their
skills, enabling them to connect more effectively to the needs of elderly and
disabled people. The training of formal and informal caregivers is
certainly the most effective means of coping with this challenge
-it is important not only to design accessible homes, but also to guarantee
accessible public spaces. There is a need for further reinforcement of the
cooperation between residential housing companies and organizations,
local associations and elderly citizens and other end users
- To make technological innovations user-friendly, users involvement in all
stage of ICT solutions design and implementation including regular
evaluation of the end user’s satisfaction is necessary
This project is implemented through the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF
Al servizio di gente unica
SOME KEY RECOMMENDATIONS
-Interpersonal relations and intergenerational solidarity are one of the key
conditions for developing new forms of informal care and solidarity among
citizens and dwellers. Local authorities should support and promote
partnerships that strengthen neighbourhood and community networks, also
by establishing new formal tools
- Social innovation for independent living cannot, therefore, prescind
from a person-centred approach, but sustainability in this respect cannot
prescind from organizational innovation, in which the vertical and horizontal
integration of actors and functions appear to be necessary processes that
must also be supported through the use of instruments of change management.
- defining strategies and practices in the transition from institutional care to
community-based care, sustainability is the key issue.
Passing from experimentation to permanent policies is a big challenge in
which sustainability will be the central theme in coming years.
