This book weaves all of these factors together to engage in and promote medical, biomedical and psychosocial interventions, including lifestyle changes, for healthier aging outcomes. The text begins with an introduction to age-related changes that increase in disease and disability commonly associated with old age. Written by experts in healthy aging, the text approaches the principles of disease and disability prevention via specific health issues. Each chapter highlights the challenge of not just increasing life expectancy but also deceasing disease burden and disability in old age. The text then shifts into the whole-person implications for clinicians working with older patients, including the social and cultural considerations that are necessary for improved outcomes as Baby Boomers age and healthcare systems worldwide adjust.

Healthy Aging is an important resource for those working with older patients, including geriatricians, family medicine physicians, nurses, gerontologists, students, public health administrators, and all other medical professionals.

"The audience is older adults who want to make good choices and healthcare students and professionals who want to educate this population. This unique book focuses on healthy individuals while discussing the possible negative effects that certain choices can make on different body systems. The graphics, algorithms, graphs, bullet points and photos enhance the usefulness of this book." (Crystal Plank, Doody's Book Reviews, July 26, 2019)
This book highlights both biomedical and psychosocial interventions, including lifestyle changes that promote healthy aging. The text begins with an introduction to the principles of disease prevention and health promotion with an emphasis on the impact of age on life expectancy, disease and disability. Written by experts who have an interest in healthy aging, the text highlights steps that patients and their healthcare providers can take to promote healthy aging. There is an emphasis on maintaining function and preventing disability with increasing age. Common biomedical interventions including exercise, nutrition, sleep and cancer prevention are addressed in detail. The text then shifts to address the psychosocial determinant of healthy aging including, housing, relationships, intimacy, work and spirituality. The text then outlines steps that healthcare systems and public policy agencies should adopt to promote healthy aging, both for those who are older now and for those who will be older in the future.

Healthy Aging is an important resource for those working with older patients, including geriatricians, family medicine physicians, nurses, gerontologists, students, public health administrators, and all other medical professionals.
