Résumé :

Ce document s'avère être un recueil de toutes les recherches et activités menées entre 1998 et 2002 sur le vieillissement et les incapacités dans l'Union européeene. Les cinq grands champs d'étude sont: les maladies reliées à l'âge et les problèmes de santé, les processus de base du vieillissement physiologique, les aspects démographiques et sociaux du vieillissement de la population, les limitations fonctionnelles à la période du grand âge, les services de santé et les services sociaux aux personnes âgées.

On note les projets suivants :
- Physical frailty and loss of functional independence in old age : determinants and adaptations to physical activity (Royaume-Uni), p. 90
BETTER-AGEING aims to investigate the causes of frailty of the human motor system from whole body performance to single muscle fibre level, and the impact of an innovative 12-month physical activity programme on frailty prevention, well being and daily functioning.

- The measurement of quality of life in older adults and its relationship to healthy ageing (Royaume-Uni), p. 192
Objectives : To review the existing literature and measures on quality of life and healthy ageing in older adults. To adapt the existing WHO measure of quality of life, the WHOQOL, for use with older adults. To use the adapted WHOQOL in a study of healthy ageing. To consider the relationship between healthy ageing and a variety of lifestyle, psychological, and cultural factors.

- European challenge for healthy ageing (Italie), p. 194
The "European Challenge for Healthy Ageing" project aims at improving the criteria to define frailty, that is emerging as a major characteristic of elderly people. The project will then develop two quantitative indexes ("Frailty index" and "Functional Activity Index") that will express the degree of frailty and activity level in elders. In addition, a correlation of the "Frailty index" and the "Functional Activity index" with the genetic variation will be studied. The project includes also a plan to disseminate the results throughout Europe among organisations operating with elders.

- Ageing well : european study of adult well-being (ESAW) (Royaume-Uni), p. 198
ESAW shall produce a European Socio-Cultural Model for Ageing Well which estimates the direct causal contribution of five key components (physical health and functional status, mental efficacy, life activity, material security and social support) along with personal characteristics and culture to the outcome variable ageing well. It shall support domestic and international policy development, and guide the delivery of professional care and services to older people across Europe.

- Enabling autonomy, participation, and well-being in old age : the home environment as a determinant for healthy ageing (Suède), p. 200
The main aim of the ENABLE-AGE project is to examine the home environment as a determinant for autonomy, participation and well-being in very old age in a longitudinal perspective. More specifically, e. g. to explore country specific housing-related societal support as represented in personal situations; to provide an update of housing policies and legislation; to provide a home assessment standard methodology; to provide policy recommendations in housing issues across the EU.
