The Challenges That We Face
There are many challenges associated with aging. But it is a more difficult process when an individual does not have certain essential tools to achieve healthy aging, such as knowledge of proper exercise and nutrition, peer support, and the ability to cope with the psychological and physical health changes due to aging. Wellness and health promotion programs help older adults to understand the complexity of and ingredients for optimal psychosocial and physical well-being. However, when individuals 60 and older have socio-economic challenges, it could place them at a greater risk for institutionalizing or pre-mature death.
