Since the last few decades, developed societies have been evolving towards a global aging of their populations. This evolution has been accompanied by the problematic of the dependence of aging populations. Dependence is today a challenge posed to social, healthcare or medico-social organizations.
Many studies have shown the positive effect of changes in health (physical activity, nutrition, socialization) on functional abilities of aged subjects. Intervention at subject's home is an easy and inexpensive way to delay the onset of dependence in the elderly population. Health coaching is defined as "a regular series of phone calls between the patient and the health care professional to support and encourage the patient and promote healthy behaviors such as treatment control, healthy eating and physical activity ".
