When collaborative approaches benefit our older people

The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2021-2030 the Decade of Healthy Ageing. It aims to reduce health inequalities and improve the lives of older persons.

Since more and more people are living longer with a disability or dependency, making it necessary for their relatives to provide them with face-to-face assistance, it seems essential to reflect on and provide solutions.

It is in this sense that the Aging research axis is dedicated to the promotion of quality care for frail elderly people, more particularly the family carers of people living with dementia, and residents of nursing homes. It aims to develop innovative solutions to meet the needs of these people in an effective way, and thus improve their quality of life.


The projects are presented according to the language of the study.
