ABSTRACT

Population aging is a major challenge today.

The proposed AGA model, entitled [email protected], is based on a holistic and multidisciplinary individual assessment protocol, with the consequent design and implementation of intervention strategies tailored to each individual, aimed at preventing frailty and functional, cognitive, and social decline of the older adult. Intervention actions focus on personalized exercise programs, nutrition education, cognitive stimulation, co-morbidity monitoring, therapeutic counseling, and overall promotion of well-being.
