Currently, we are in a socio-demographic context in which the number of people in need of care, people over the age of 65, people with disabilities and people in a situation of dependency. This leads to new demands and expectations about the attentions paid. This means that social intervention is facing a great challenge. So far, the forms of social intervention and care provided by the system do not seem to fully meet emerging needs, mainly because of their poor adaptation to new social contexts and lifestyles. Therefore, this research aims to define a new professional figure conceptualized as Technical of Personal Autonomy and Prevention of Dependency (TAP) that responds to the challenges posed through the implementation of new interventions based on the paradigm of universal accessibility and design for all people
