The themes emphasize the interdisciplinarity necessary to know the aging process, which allows a complete formation in this area highlighting the imporance of the individual, society, lifestyle choices and the understanding of aging in the biological, psychological and health context for the optimization of the life course that provides strategies to ptevent frailty, physical and cognitive decline.

Cognitive and Dementia Deficit, Functionality and Aging, Personal Social Networks and Trajectories of Aging: An Age and Gender Perspective, Anxiety, Depression, Psychosis, Sleep in the Elderly, Mindfulness and Compassion in Older People, Spirituality and Aging, Optimism and Hope are the addressed thematic and assumed as titles of the ten chapters that compose the work. By integrating and reflecting what is the state of art, the work will certainly be useful to all those interested in the health and well-being of the older people.
