The increase of longevity of the population is one of the major achievements of the twentieth first century. This rapid demographic transition poses huge challenges to many countries on diverse areas. This two week course will inform you – from a different perspective – about the factors that keep older people healthy and participating in the society. In this multidisciplinary course on healthy aging we focus on a better understanding of the aging process (biological, psychological and social), the prevention of functional decline and preservation of autonomy. Furthermore, we have different visits e.g. to a Senior Friendly Hospital and an innovative nursing home. We will let you experience getting older.
