In 1996, national preventive efforts for the elderly were introduced in Denmark with a general offer of home visits by preventive staff.The focal point of the preventive home visits has been the functional decline and the corresponding early and coordinated follow-up activities. This has proved an extremely suitable instrument in activities aimed at maintaining elderly people's autonomy, independence, and functional ability, in allowing them to continue taking care of themselves.
