As population aging advances, the urgency of observing healthcare models that seek to promote the comprehensiveness of the older person becomes evident. This short review explores some theoretical points that encourage the study of the Salutogenic Paradigm proposed by Antonovsky (1996), pondering the possible benefits for the gerontological field. Short readings, such as the one presented here, encourage us to explore and better understand the health of older adults and the care mechanisms that arise from it.
