Laura Remaschi, Patrizia Meringolo, Ovidiu Gavrilovici & Christophe Loubat

This study was part of a wider project http://www.vgs-video.it/GRAMPS_EU/it/homepage focused on testing a model for social support addressed to elderly people in three European countries (NETHERLANDS, ROMANIA, ITALY). The project was aimed to improve social policies, cooperation between social and health services and care givers, collaboration between formal and informal care givers. Theoretical background came from community based researches about elderly people in weak situation (Greenglass, Fiksenbaum, & Eaton, 2006; Kempen et al., 1999), social support (Carstensen, 1992; Grano & Lucidi, 2005; Sarason, Levine, Basham, & Sarason, 1983), different housing or different care (David, Moos, & Kahn, 1981; Moos & Lenke, 1984; Timko & Moos, 1990, 1991; Zaff & Devlin, 1998), neighbors' networks (Unger & Wandersman, 1985).
