The request of services to support autonomy is pressing today more than ever and it will increase with the constant change in the structure of the population.
The quality of life in the community where the person lives is a fundamental requirement: safety, happiness, affection are just three of the points that characterize the state of the person.
The purpose of this session is to assess the state of the tools and methods to identify, evaluate, preserve or increase the well-being of the person, referred to as an overall state of physical, emotional, cognitive and social well-being.
