Resumen
Este artículo analiza la autonegligencia en las personas mayores, con el objetivo de promover la investigación y la intervención ante este desafío planteado a los servicios socio-sanitarios por el envejecimiento de la población. Se examinan aspectos sobre su conceptualización y la heterogeneidad de las personas mayores autonegligentes. Se analizan datos de prevalencia, los resultados de las investigaciones sobre las consecuencias producidas y los estudios que muestran que se trata de un síndrome geriátrico multifactorial. Se discute la dificultad de las intervenciones para conseguir el equilibrio entre los derechos de las personas mayores y la obligación de los profesionales de garantizar su bienestar. Finalmente, se expone la tendencia actual a establecer una atención integral a la salud física y mental en el nivel de atención primaria y a hacer participar a las personas en su autocuidado.

Abstract
This article analyses self-neglect in elder people, aiming to promote research and intervention in response to this challenge posed to socio-health services due to the aging of the population. Different aspects related to the conceptualization of self-neglect and the heterogeneity of self-neglecting seniors are examined. Prevalence data, research results about consequences, and research results reflecting a multifactorial geriatric syndrome are analysed. The difficulty of interventions in order to balance the elder people´s rights and professionals’ obligation to guarantee their well-being is discussed. Finally, the current tendency to establish an integrated care to physical and mental health at the primary care level and to involve people in their self-care is exposed.
Key Words
Self-neglect, Elder people, Integrated primary care.
