Gaming for Mutual Learning in Elder Care

The Gaming for Mutual Learning in Elder Care (GAMLEC) project is about promoting high quality standards in elder care. The GAMLEC project aims at providing an easy-to-access and playful way to acquire and share knowledge and competencies by means of a board game with learning card decks.
The GAMLEC game will be available free of charge on a publicly accessible e-learning platform that will also provide all necessary guidelines, instructions, related materials and further information. A broader and easy-to-access knowledge on standards of quality for dependent seniors enables the target group to make a factual contribution to a sector characterised by a lack of professional carers



The aim of the Erasmus+ GAMLEC project is to provide training that:

  • promotes high quality standards in elderly care
  • takes scarcity of resources into consideration
  • makes learning easy, and complex content accessible
  • is innovative.


  • social and health care professionals with a low level of education or poor language skills
  • volunteers in care homes and relatives of dependent elderly people
  • dependent elderly as an indirect target group together with care facilities who will benefit from the training in order to increase the quality of caregivers.
