Strategies to improve quality of life among the elderly
The proportion of elderly (aged 60 +) in the population is expected to increase from 12 % to 22 % by 2050. Older people face many emotional and physical challenges that affect their mental health status. More than 20 % of elderly are affected by a form of mental disorder, which are responsible for 6.6 % of all disabilities in ageing persons. The EU-funded RISE-WELL project proposes a new method to address the problem. It will dissociate the complex interaction between concrete medical conditions, mental stress provoked by the ageing process, and the social environment. Via advanced scientific and technological methods, it will introduce care strategies to improve quality of life and create a long-term infrastructure for ageing care.
