Aging & Later Life

We design and implement preventive, treatment and care strategies to improve quality of life, functioning and participation of older persons throughout the aging trajectory.

Researchers address issues of multi-morbidity, functional impairment, polypharmacy, atypical presentation, and personal preferences. A core concept is resilience in relation to different adversities that older persons can be confronted with during the aging trajectory.

Through our research we provide adequate, personalized and timely care to persons in the last years of life.
