Seminar on Active and Healthy Aging: Shaping Health and Supporting Frailty

Thursday, 24 October, 2013 - 13:00 to Thursday, 24 October, 2013 - 18:00
ICAB, Zaal Madera
Witte Patersstraat 4, 1040 Brussel
The Crosstalks project Healthy and Active aging starts from an interdisciplinary and holistic approach that addresses both mental and physical health to stimulate the independence and well-being of older people. Supporting frailty therefore requires strategies that go beyond clinical issues, as part of a wide range of services to their needs. This workshop captures the different aspects of frailty with elderly people.
