Abstract

The assessment of physical and psychosocial skills and pain is central to support the medical and physiotherapy treatment with the aim to enhance autonomy and social participation in active life for elderly. Falls and physical inactivity prevention are the cornerstones of building a good perception on safety and promoting health and well-being of older people with disability or frailty. Ability to adapt, empowerment and reliability must be increased by an integrated socio-sanitary team, privileged point of connection and support.
