All

This report was commissioned by National Seniors Australia to evaluate the current state of play in evidence pertaining to the association between modifiable risk factors and healthy ageing.

Summary

One of the focal points for age care reform is wellness, reablement, and restorative care. While there are many information resources on healthy ageing, it isn’t clear to the members of National Seniors Australia (NSA) which ones are reliable and up-to-date. NSA engaged world leading experts in this area from the Australian National University to provide this up-to-date review on the key topics:

  • Diet
  • Alcohol and smoking
  • Cognitive ability
  • Active lifestyle
  • Medical and metabolic factors, and Mental health.
