National symposium on recent trends in “Healthy Ageing”

National symposium on recent trends in “Healthy Ageing”

Ageing is the normal physiological process of life. Physical changes that come over with time cannot be prevented but one can certainly reduce the health risk associated with ageing by making conscious and healthy choices. The population of 60 plus has crossed 80 million mark and the interest of planners politicians and geriatric caregivers has also picked momentum. Even Indian data is available these days because of the amount of work and the shift of government policies towards geriatric, age will make its presence felt suddenly in 20 years from now. 

Healthy ageing is the development and maintenance of optimal mental, social and physical well-being and function in adults. This will most likely be achieved when communities are safe, promote health and well-being. Use of health services and community programmes can also prevent or minimize diseases. Individuals can act and start taking care of themselves now. Changes with ageing are more or less similar for everyone. But their development may vary and will not necessarily develop at a particular age for everyone. Everyone will have their own pattern of ageing and it is generally linked your genetic makeup and the lifestyle that one has followed 

The medical advancement has ensured an increase in the average life span but that also has to related with living well to ensure quality of life. Actions that should be taken to ensure the same basically include working around establishing an infrastructure and support for healthy ageing initiatives, physical activity, healthy eating, emotional health and wellbeing, substance misuse, sexual health, smoking, health protection and safety promotion and raising awareness of general health issues. 

Centre for Physiotherapy and rehabilitation sciences, Jamia Millia Islamia endeavors to work in the direction of geriatric care as outlined in its objectives. In order to address the above said issue in larger interest of health professionals is organizing a National symposium on Healthy Ageing on 31 March, 2010at JMI.
