Wellness in Aging
Your Wellness is Important
Mental health can be improved through promoting active and healthy aging. Mental health-specific health promotion for older adults involves creating living conditions and environments that support wellbeing and that support all people to lead a healthy life.
Being physically active, socially connected and challenging your brain can improve your long-term health and can help you to bounce back from illness. “These risk factors along with a positive attitude toward aging and addressing mental health are key modifiable factors to reduce overall dementia burden by up to 35%.” (Lancet, July 2017).
