People in England can now expect to live for far longer than ever before – but these extra years of life are not always spent in good health, with many people developing conditions that reduce their independence and quality of life.
The NHS has a key role to play in helping older people manage these long-term conditions, making sure they receive the right kind of support to help them live as well as possible.
The Ageing Well programme seeks to address this by supporting older people with frailty in their communities. It promotes healthier ageing and begins to address inequalities through population health management.
As we develop our plans and information about ageing welll, we'll publish it on this website and communicate more about this through digital and non-digital channels.
