The term ‘healthy ageing’ encapsulates the dimension of health as an important component of quality of life for older persons. Studies often tend to focus on the negative aspects of ageing: mortality, morbidity, disability and decline in functional status. There is a need for all, including policy makers, programme implementers and researchers, to shift our outcome measures to focus on those persons who are ageing well in health – physically, mentally and in productive engagements.
