Healthy Ageing


This information is about the specific health area mentioned above. It comprises a combination of textual and video information, on our site and on external sites.  We will be adding new specific health areas and further information continually.

The idea is for you to understand more about the health area you are addressing before you get too far building your action plan.

General Information

Healthy Ageing!!

What an interesting term, but what does it really mean? So many people would answer this differently. But in general terms healthy ageing is often not just about what you do in older age but more importantly what you did in younger age that affects your older age.

The government initiative on healthy ageing is all about; remaining active, eating healthy, keeping an active brain, social interaction etc.

People over 65 do need to be mindful of the above but a lot will depend on the state of you mind and body at 65 which determines how you deal with these things.

We have some information on healthy ageing on our life journey
