The Lc65+ cohort :

For better understanding and prevention of frailty among those aged 65 years and over

Why do some individuals get frail and others not ?


How can we prevent this unfavorable evolution and the associated loss of quality of life ?


What are needs and expectations of people aged 65 years and over in Lausanne regarding their health ?


The Lausanne 65+ cohort is a study to investigate aging among those aged 65 years and over and aims to particularly answer these questions.
