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.
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.
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.
