Belgian Frailty Day
Demographic ageing is one of the most serious challenges that Europe is currently facing. Older people are at greater risk of becoming frail and develop disability. However, since frailty is not an inevitable consequence of ageing, it can be prevented and treated to foster a longer and healthier life. Belgium participates in ADVANTAGE, the first EU Joint Action on Frailty.
This symposium brings Belgian policy makers, officials from public administrations, scientists, representatives of professional and care organisations and other stakeholders involved in the health and/or care of older people together.
