On 7 November, the city of Benidorm hosted the 18th Congress of Associations for the Elderly organized by the Grupo de Mayores de Telefónica (Telefónica Seniors Group).
The central theme of the meeting was ageing and the prevention of physical and cognitive impairment. During the event, experts enlightened attendees on the tools and technologies needed to promote a healthy life at all ages.
Santiago González, President of Telefónica Seniors, introduced the conference by alluding to the importance of this congress and its central theme: the scope of working towards healthy ageing and the practices needed to achieve it. Ageism, together with the infantilization of the elderly, and the right to be able to decide where and how-to live-in safety were some of the concerns raised by the chairman.
The conference hosted different professionals in the field, as well as representatives of other related organizations. Juan Luis Aramburu, family doctor of the ATAM Clinical Team, represented our organization. During his presentation, Dr. Aramburu focused on the importance of people’s functional capacity, above and beyond the diagnoses and the diseases they may have. He also stressed the importance of daily habits to age healthy. He emphasized that all the factors that modulate our aging are determined by the feeling of loneliness and the existence of a vital purpose. For these reasons, it is essential to stay active and motivated both physically and mentally.
Finally, he highlighted the importance of disability prevention and the best healthcare practices addressed by the ATAM Clinical Team.
The day provided a lot of information and was an exceptional educational meeting. We share the link so that you can enjoy the full meeting.
