The Declaration of Healthy Aging Independence

Organizations committed to promoting healthy aging may consider adopting a Declaration of Healthy Aging Independence. The Declaration of Healthy Aging Independence states:

  • As they age, people deserve to live a healthier, longer, and more independent life.
  • Adults want to learn better self-care and management of their own lives. They just need to learn how.
  • People should be supported, encouraged, and celebrated as they learn new skills to live better, more independent lives.
  • Independence should be affordable and available to everyone.

Healthy Aging Is at the Heart of Independent Living

At the heart of healthy aging endeavors is the unwavering belief that everyone has the right to a healthier, longer, and more independent life as they age. This belief stems from an understanding that aging is a natural progression of life, and there should be no compromise on the quality of life, irrespective of age. Organizations that foster healthy and independent aging should be committed to driving this change, making a meaningful difference in the lives of older adults, and shaping societal attitudes towards aging.

Empowering Older Adults With Quality Healthy Aging Programs

Inspired by this belief, your organization can implement a high-quality, outcomes-based healthy aging initiative – a novel initiative designed to support healthy aging in the community. By harnessing the skills and expertise of trained nursing professionals, a high-quality, outcomes-based program will offer personalized care plans, regular health monitoring, and preventive healthcare education to older individuals. The goal is to empower older adults with the knowledge and resources they need to maintain their health and independence.
