Health and Welfare

One of society's major challenges is the demographic change, especielly with an increasing proportion of ageing people and a growing number of senior citizens over 85 years of age. This requires a need to develop new, innovative and efficient service models and methods to ensure that the dignity, health, participation and well-being of the elderly in the community.
