Improvements in nutrition, public health, general living standards and medical technology have helped to increase the prospects for a healthy retirement. This book gives advice on how to maintain a general level of wellbeing by taking minimal exercise, eating sensibly and taking account of decreasing physical ability. There is also advice and information on medicines and common illnesses of later life. The final section is a guide to getting help from the various agencies including the NHS, social services and voluntary groups. The aim of this book is to show how people can, with a little attention to their body's changing needs, have a healthy retirement.
