older man and health care worker

Senior programme


The programme is a part of the university’s strategic research cooperation with the University of Skövde. The programme is anchored in the research area The Human Perspective in Care.

The proportion of older people in the world is steadily rising, particularly in Sweden and Europe. While this is good news, it is also a challenge for society as a whole. An important part of what we see as problematic with this aging, both for individuals and socioeconomically, is, however, not aging itself but the illnesses that accompany it.
