AgeingC is a multidisciplinary group of CINTESIS constituted by sixty researchers who focus their study on two areas: a) Social & Behavioural Gerontology (i.e. ageing process, policy and services), and b) Clinical Gerontology & Geriatrics (for example, frailty, mental health and dementia, family care, use of new technology for an independent life and the well-being of the elderly).
The objective is to develop and implement actions that increase the individuals’ empowerment, closely engaging health and education institutions and establishing the necessary link with the community’s existing resources. Likewise, the group seeks to develop and implement new care models (integrated care leading to efficiency gains) and novel approaches for the elderly, in accordance with current knowledge on the ageing process and the best practices in Gerontology and Geriatrics.
