The National Institutes of Health of the United States Advances-in-Geroscience Conference reported that: “The major diseases causing morbidity and mortality have one root cause in common – aging.” Aging is a lifelong process that begins in childhood, with implications for health span and life expectancy. However, age-related chronic illness and disability increase exponentially after the age of 65. In addition to biological aging, older people are more likely to experience various life events, such as retirement, the death of a partner, major medical problems, social network changes, and moving to a retirement village. During older age, these events may result in critical transitions and turning points that influence an individual’s trajectory and evoke substantial change through their senior years. Given this, preventing health and life problems in later life and understanding successful aging are of considerable interest and importance. To address this demand, the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) is planning a special issue dedicated to this area of investigation.
