This pamphlet indicates how certain problems associated with old age can be largely attributed to myths surrounding the ageing process. It shows how many of these problems could be effectively tackled through changing lifestyles, providing appropriate care and adjusting the social, working and physical environments. It aims to broaden the debate on the changes necessary to ensure that people of all ages take advantage of a longer and healthier life.
