As part of the 'Ageing Well Public Talk Series' we are exploring how important it is, over our lifespan, to maintain a well-balanced nutrition and hydration as well as regular physical, cognitiveand social activity in the older age. The principles explored in this discussion are also known as the 'Five Pillars of Ageing Well'.
We start ageing the moment we are born. It just becomes more visible as we grow older. Although there is a widely used benchmark 65+ years as the age that signifies a person of older age, the way we age depends on decisions and behaviours we have been making throughout our lives.
The ‘Ageing Well Public Talk Series’ led by Dr Jitka Vseteckova, have been delivered since 2005 to a number of audiences locally, nationally and internationally. These audiences include service users in a general practice in the UK, members of the public, third sector organisations and charities, practitioners, clinicians and allied health professionals; via face to face talks held at The Open University; online, in collaboration with Voluntary Health Scotland and internationally via an education platform for clinicians and allied health professionals via Cambridge Medical Academy and UKeMED.
