Action for healthy ageing and elderly care



The Novartis Gerontology Foundation supports education and innovation in geriatric medicine, general practice, supportive care and patient management to prevent dysfunction in later life.


About Healthandage.com:

The Foundation supports education and innovation in healthy ageing and in the care of the elderly. Its strategy focuses on maximising the functional status, quality of life, and independence of elderly people by preventing or delaying the development of age-related dysfunction.
Increasing awareness of modifiable risk factors and improving interventions that minimise their impact both play a key role in this strategy, and these aspects are emphasised in the resources provided on the website. These include:

  • reference materials on key topics in geriatrics,
  • intervention guidelines from the peer-reviewed literature,
  • current medical news on healthy ageing and geriatric care,
  • interactive tools to raise awareness of risk factors for dysfunction,
  • details of upcoming gerontology conferences and seminars, and
  • question and answer sessions with experts in the care of the elderly.

The site is organised into three distinctive areas, catering for: physicians, other healthcare professionals and patients. Within each area, information and interactive tools related to dysfunctions are grouped under seven topics (Alzheimer's disease, depression, diabetes, heart disease, impaired mobility, incontinence, nutrition and fitness), with an additional topic covering information on healthy lifestyles.

This speeds access to relevant information and makes it easier for visitors to see issues from others' perspectives too, encouraging the multidisciplinary approach that is at the heart of successful geriatric education and care.
