Family and home are still considered the most appropriate response to not self-sufficient elder needs. This finding, the increase of ageing and chronic diseases, the depletion of family, the dwindling resources pose our welfare facing the challenge of designing new strategies in support of patient and caregivers who assist him at home. The project’s purpose was to transfer skills to caregiver, family and family assistant, to improve its ability to assist the elderly at home and to draw himself benefit. Authors have evaluated the perception of being perceived by caregiver after the intervention. Their point of view has been collected with in-depth interviews, which made it possible to assess proposals for service improvement, mainly due to the need to better define the service target.
