Chronic health conditions are, unfortunately, often a part of the aging process. Eighty-six percent of people over age 65 live with at least one chronic health condition, such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, or cancer. Sixty-one percent live with two or more such conditions. Chronic health conditions can create challenges that affect every aspect of a person’s life. However, learning to manage those conditions enables people to stay healthy, active and engaged in their communities.
Healthy and independent older people contribute to the well-being of families and communities. It is a myth to portray them as passive recipients of social or health services. At the present moment, the number of older people increases exponentially and only tailored interventions will make it possible to enhance the contribution of this group to social development.
Healthy aging is a continuous process of optimizing opportunities to maintain and improve physical and mental health, independence, and quality of life throughout the life course. For an additional fee, this six-month long program program can be chosen alone or combined with the Cognitive Enhancement Program, depending on your needs and goals.
