       A dusty game                Dart game Signaling and
                                         responding




Game of theses: Is it ok if it’s       the family care game
    something more?                            www.vilans.nl
Now, due to ageing and lack of
      human resources:




                          www.vilans.nl
               Changing family care
–       Communication: www.sharecare.nl;
–       Better care:
    •    Management
    •    Guidance with complex care needs
    •    Adjusting to the ‘housepital’
    •    Reconciling work and caring life:
         –   not the ‘employability’ of the carer, but
         – the ‘careability’ of work.
