ACTIVE AGEING 

Exercises being conducted for our Active Ageing members

The World Health Organization defines Active Ageing as the process of optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life as people age. It further explains the word “active” as continued participation in social, economic, cultural, spiritual and public affairs, not just the ability to be physically active. As people age their activity routines tend to reduce. Decline in physical activities may result in poorer mental health, paving way to disorders such as dementia and other lifestyle diseases such as Diabetes and Hypertension.

The process of ageing is shaped by various factors. On the one hand there are biological preconditions that are part of the cause of good health throughout the life course and thus in old age. On the other hand, social circumstances as well as the lifestyle constitute significant factors that impact on health and well-being. 

Studies conducted over the years have found that active people are healthier and happier. Mental stimulation, social engagement and physical activities have a preventive effect on age related conditions. Active ageing aims to extend healthy life expectancy and quality of life for all people as they age.
