Worldwide launch of the book “People, Care and Work in the Home”

One week ago, Home Renaissance Foundation in collaboration with Nottingham Trent University launched its latest book ‘People, Care and Work in the Home’ in a virtual event that is now available on our YouTube Channel.

The contributions were very enriching. However, if you do not have much free time, but would like to learn more, two of the keynotes are available separately:

‘My Home, My Life’ by Sheila, Baroness Hollins, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry of Disability at St George’s University of London

‘A Home for Later Life’ by Richard, Lord Best, co-chairman the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Housing and Care for Older People

Some highlights:

  • Bryan K. Sanderson CBE

“The home provides a base, which is secure, and a refuge for anybody who is part of it. So, we are talking about the protection of the family.”

  • Prof. Mohamed Gamal Abdelmonem

“The book has a clear agenda, which is trying to address societal challenges to the Home. Home as a center to society and to center to its transformation.”

  • Richard, Lord Best

“Before Covid 19 I was already saying how significant the home was for those in later life. Home is for them the place where they are going to spend the rest of their lives. How important it is to have a home where you can flourish and thrive and not suffer.”

  • Sheila, Baroness Hollins

“A truly caring society would welcome and celebrate difference in human beings. But how many people know what has been happening to people with intellectual disabilities during the pandemic. The mortality rate for these people has been similar or higher than the mortality rate for over 65.”

  • Prof. Antonio Argandoña

“The work in the home cannot be correctly understood if it is not considered, that we are rational social animals, that we seek autonomy but also we suffer from our vulnerability. In the home, the autonomy of some individuals is at the service of the dependency of others. In the home, love is the main virtue, and the relationships are led by generosity and care.”
