Ageing and Long-Term Care
The Research Line Ageing and Long-Term Care (ALTC) creates an inspiring scientific environment where researchers in the area of ageing and long-term care conduct high quality research in close collaboration with the (regional) health care field in order to increase quality of care and quality of life among older people.
Research and Impact
We develop and disseminate knowledge on psychosocial, clinical and environmental determinants of health care problems, including prevalence, needs, social participation, and independency. Furthermore, we develop and evaluate innovative programmes, research methods and interventions for and with older persons, enabling functional capacity and improving the quality of long-term care. Improving scientific methods and implementation of evidence are important in this.
