Objectives

Most of the researches conducted within the ACTIVE team aim at studying:

  • intrinsic capacities of individuals and environmental factors contributing to develop / maintain/ reduce functional capacity in the context of acute/chronic disease, disability, and/or old age; and
  • innovative strategies based on the optimization of such factors. The team is composed of epidemiologists, psychologists, cognitive scientists, geriatricians, physical therapists, neurologists and a psychiatrist.

Research area

The first research axis is coordinated by Karine Pérès.
It investigates to what extent intrinsic capacity and environments contribute to develop / maintain / reduce functional ability. Functional trajectories associated with aging process are studied through a continuum distinguishing robustness, pre-frailty, frailty, and activity limitation.
We examine their determinants through a multidimensional approach considering intrinsic capacities (cognition, depression, sensory impairments, personality traits…) and environmental factors (family support, social network, (un)adapted home, professional assistance, digital technologies) that may influence the sequence and speed of functional deterioration.
The heterogeneity of these trajectories is explored in several prospective population-based and clinical studies (PAQUID, AMI, 3C, CONSTANCES, COGLOC…).
More recently, taking advantage of the ongoing cohort studies, the PA-COVID survey, set up very shortly after the first COVID-19 lockdown in France, aims at providing valuable knowledge on older adults’ social and psychological experiences of the COVID-19 crisis and its impact on cognitive, mental and functional health.

The second research axis coordinated by Hélène Sauzéon focuses on innovative strategies based on the optimization of individuals’ intrinsic capacity and/or environments.
As an example of strategies based on optimized environments, the French Alzheimer village is an experimental accommodation facility for older adults with Alzheimer’s disease built like a traditional village.
The team is currently conducting an ambitious multidimensional research program evaluating whether this innovative model is relevant compared to traditional nursing homes (see below). Other researches involve interventions relying on digital technologies.
They generally address two main health issues: rehabilitation access and patient agentivity (i.e., active role of the patient).
