The New Promise of Longevity--a report on the aging well framework

Over the last two years, the Philips aging Think Tank has been gathering insights into the topic of aging well and has developed an ‘Aging Well Model’ to explore the possibilities and prospects for successful aging. The model examines four primary pillars – Aging Society, Personal Aging, Capabilities and Public Private Policies, and offers perspectives on successful aging from both individual and societal standpoints.

 

This whitepaper explores the dimensions of the Aging Well Model and provides recommendations in relation to each area designed to maintain quality of life through transitions as we age.
